ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) – A man who was arrested in a carjacking case told investigators he had also killed a man a week earlier.

After being arrested Sunday for the carjacking, 33-year-old Alexander Acs then rode with Orange County Sheriff’s detectives to an apartment complex where they found a badly decomposed body. Acs told investigators he used a chunk of asphalt to kill the man.

Deputies say Acs was looking for an ex-girlfriend who had pressed charges against him in the Tampa area. He says he became upset with the man he was staying with and on Jan. 11 hit him with the concrete.

He says he then tracked down and carjacked a male friend of his ex-girlfriend.
