JANESVILLE, WI (WTAQ) - A southern Wisconsin man has admitted burning the body of an 18-year-old woman who answered his Internet ad for sex.
30-year-old Nathan Middleton of rural Evansville struck a plea deal in Rock County. He pleaded guilty to hiding and mutilating a corpse.
According to officials, Middleton claimed that he had sex at his home last fall with Aprina Paul -- she died after taking drugs -- and he panicked and burned her body.
An attempted escape charge was dropped in the plea agreement. That came about a month after his original arrest.
Officials said Middleton wrote his mother, asking her to blow up a jail window so they could run away to Mexico. She never received that letter.
Middleton is scheduled to be sentenced on his initial two charges May 21st.
