An Indiana man is facing a murder charge after allegedly admitting to killing his girlfriend.

Jason Eaton, 43, walked into the Greensburg Police Department on Tuesday with a woman and asked to talk to an officer. He told the officer that he had killed his girlfriend, later identified as Wendy Sabatini, according to court documents.

Officers were sent to their Greensburg home where Sabatini’s son, who thought his mother was at work, let them in. He had just arrived home from a school-related internship.
