DADEVILLE, Ala. (AP) – Prosecutors say a man charged with capital murder in the deaths of his live-in girlfriend and her son in rural central Alabama has admitted killing the two.

Tallapoosa County authorities made the statement about 37-year-old José Paulino Pascual-Reyes in a court document filed Tuesday.

They’re asking a judge to order the man to provide a DNA sample for comparison with evidence found at a home where hacked-up body parts were found in August.

Authorities say the dismembered bodies were discovered after a 12-year-old girl escaped captivity at the mobile home. She was the daughter of the woman.
