  • A 28-year-old law school graduate in Georgia pleaded guilty on Monday to killing and dismembering a fellow graduate and disposing of her remains in a trash dumpster outside an apartment building where they both lived.

    NY Daily News reports:

    Prosecutors said Stephen Mark McDaniel faces life in prison for killing 27-year-old Lauren Giddings in Macon in central Georgia in June 2011, the same year that both graduated from the Mercer University School of Law in the city.

    In a statement in Macon-Bibb County court on Monday, a week before his trial was to begin, McDaniel said he entered Giddings’ apartment in the early morning hours wearing a mask.

    He choked her to death after she woke up and returned later and dismembered Giddings’ body with a hacksaw, McDaniel said.

    “It is difficult for me to explain why I killed Lauren,” McDaniel said in his statement. “It lies in my own inability to understand it myself.”
