Man confesses to killing ex-girlfriend's teen daughter

TRAGIC: John Hurt and his alleged victim Jessica Tetter

A MAN has confessed to murdering his ex-girlfriend's teenage daughter and throwing her body in a bin.

John Hurt admitted to killing 16-year-old, Jessica Tetter, who was found 'beaten and buried' in Hammond, Indiana, just one day after she disappeared from her home, reports Mail Online.

Hurt was said to have claimed that Tetter attempted to fight him before he killed her and he has since been charged with first degree murder and concealment of a homicide.

The schoolgirl's mother said her daughter had simply tried to stop an arguement between the couple, who were involved in an 'on again, off again' relationship.

When the mother returned home that day, Hurt told her that her daughter had runaway from home.

It has been reported that Hurt admitted to choking the girl to death and an autopsy confirmed that the girl died of trauma to the head and body.

His bond has been set at $1 million.
