A Colorado teenager confessed to abducting, killing and dismembering a 10-year-old girl last year on Tuesday. Austin Reed Sigg, 18, plead guilty to charges of first-degree murder and sexual assault, as well as the unsuccessful kidnapping of a female jogger months before he murdered the young girl, Reuters reports.

Jessica Ridgeway vanished on her way to school in Westminister, a Denver suburb, last October. Police found her remains in the neighboring town of Arvada and also in the home of Sigg’s mother in Westminster.

“No charges were dismissed as part of a plea bargin,” Jefferson County district attorney Peter Weird said in a statement. Sigg’s sentencing is scheduled for mid-November. He faces life in prison.

He deserves a life in prison, he is a horrible man. He should be sent to the electrical chair.

I have no idea how it would help me, but if I ever murder anyone the first thing i'm doing is cut up the body.

@Think24/7 @Openminded1 @EthanMartin Sonny you are the troll, I am just an old man having fun, keeping my mind sharp, and I am a night owl, come from 30 years as a cop on some very late night shift. You on the other hand are just a young punk with no life just sitting in your tiny apt with mom in the other room sleeping, while you troll away. I am retired and hate TV, what is your sorry excuse at your age trolling late night. You a loner with no friends,  a man in the closet or maybe you are a woman. just coming in for the night after working the streets, who knows.  One thing i do know is you are a moron.
