A 22-year-old Compton man was arrested today when he admitted to killing and burying his girlfriend.

Authorities first arrived at Devion Anderson's home on Monday at 10:53 p.m. in response to a potential domestic violence dispute, according to City News Service. When they explored the Compton home, they found a fresh mound of dirt in the backyard; Anderson's girlfriend had been buried in the makeshift grave.

Anderson turned himself in to the Compton Sheriff's station at 3 a.m. today and admitted to committing the crime. He is being held in jail on $1 million bail. The victim's name has not been released yet.
