Robert Nydegger is serving a life sentence at Solano State Prison for the 1988 murder of his roommate. He entered his plea yesterday in a San Diego County court in the killing of then-25-year-old corpsman Crispino Buzon.
Nydegger was ordered held without bail.
He had been Buzon's supervisor at Balboa Naval Hospital. Police say the two men had gone to dinner together in April 1987 and Buzon was not seen again.
Nydegger had been considered a person of interest at the time, but no charges were filed.
The case was reopened in 2005, and Buzon's remains were found in San Bernardino County in 2008.
