Ronald Huskins II of Palmyra Township pleaded guilty Wednesday to a felony larceny charge. He's due back in Lenawee County Circuit Court on April 18 for sentencing.
The large Bible and ceremonial ornaments were taken during a July 20, 2011, burglary at the Palmyra Masonic Temple.
A Masonic Temple official has said that the Bible was used at each monthly meeting and ceremony of the Palmyra Masons since its 1866 charter. The Bible is believed to have been printed in 1859.
Investigators were told the Bible was placed in an old refrigerator and burned.
