ELKHART — A Goshen man must repay the state in addition to serving a 1½-year sentence after he admitted to charges related to hiding the body of his dead father and cashing his benefit checks.

Irvin Nicholson Jr., 58, was charged with three counts of welfare fraud as a Level 6 felony as well as failure to report a dead body, a misdemeanor. He was arrested in July 2020 after Goshen police investigated a body that was found in a wheelbarrow outside a residence.
