UPDATED: Mark Castellano has been officially charged with the murder.
A man confessed to Houston detectives Sunday that he killed his ex-girlfriend who has been missing for more than a week.
Houston Police Department spokesperson Jodi Silva said Mark Castellano, 37, confessed to killing Michelle Warner, his ex-girlfriend and the mother of his 3-year-old son.
Silva said Castellano confessed he killed Warner after they got into a heated argument at their home in Sharpstown.
Castellano directed the investigators to the body in an oil field between Odessa and Midland, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Investigators still have to confirm the identity of the body and the district attorney’s office is preparing murder charges against Castellano.
