Prosecutors in Ohio say a police officer accused of murdering his pregnant girlfriend admitted to his co-defendant that he killed her.
In court documents, prosecutors also say Bobby Cutts Junior told authorities where they could find the body of Jessie Davis.
Cutts is facing three counts of aggravated murder, two counts of gross abuse of a corpse, and one count each of aggravated burglary and endangering children. He has pleaded not guilty.
According to prosecutors, Cutts' high school classmate Myisha Ferrell told police of his admission last month, before pleading guilty to obstruction of justice. She also admitted to complicity to gross abuse of a corpse and was sentenced to two years in prison. Ferrell has agreed to testify against Cutts.
Davis disappeared in June, and thousands joined the search for her. She was nearly full-term in her pregnancy. Her body was found in a park about 20 miles from her home.
