LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A plea deal could be in the works for the man accused of killing a Sullivan University student.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Tom Van DeRostyne confirmed to WAVE 3 an offer has been made through Gregory O'Bryan's attorney to him.

WAVE 3 was told lawyers have sat down and discussed the terms of the plea with the parents of murdered teen Andrew Compton and they have agreed.

Defense attorneys have not had a chance to go over the terms, so they are not being made public.

Compton was a freshman at Sullivan from Carmel, Indiana. Police said O'Bryan killed Compton while the two had sex in 2010, then put his body in a dumpster.

Compton's body has not been found.

O'Bryan's trial could start in November.
