Ummm. Why not give us the info we really want. Like he confessed... ok. So now tell us why he killed her. Duh. That’s the million dollar question. If cops won’t disclose... say that. At least say... they were an item. Used to be an item. Gunshot. Strangled? Did it didn’t know victim. Robbery or random. Sheeesh. Where is the journalism!!!
On the other hand, this nit-witwill get cozy with all males for the next 25 years so women will be much safer after conviction. Well done authorities! Look at the dumb look on his face. Lol
