COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - A man who police say confessed to beating and strangling his pregnant girlfriend and burying her beside a cornfield has been indicted by a central Ohio grand jury on charges including aggravated murder.

The Franklin County prosecutor’s office said Thursday that 23-year-old Jacob Ferrero is charged with killing his 22-year-old girlfriend Samantha Greenlee and her unborn child on Oct. 8, burying her and then burning their apartment two days later.

Other charges include aggravated arson, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

Police say he admitted his involvement in the fire at the Columbus apartment and Greenlee’s killing, and led police to her body near a church in a suburb.

Ferrero’s arraignment is set for Monday. A message seeking comment was left at the county public defender’s office.
