MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Prosecutors in Dane County allege one of two men charged with stabbing a man and dumping his body in Lake Mendota has admitted to the crime.

But a criminal complaint filed Tuesday also says Rudy Ramirez-Milian, of Waunakee, claims the victim pulled a knife on him first.

Ramirez-Milian and Juan Aguilar-Vargas, of Madison, are both charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 23-year-old Jacob Payne earlier this month. Three other men have also been arrested and accused of helping the two defendants hide Payne’s body.

The State Journal (https://bit.ly/1K4uExV ) says the men are accused of weighting Payne’s body with a steel beam and chain in the Madison lake.

Authorities say Payne was an informant in a drug investigation that targeted Ramirez-Milian.
