BEIRUT: A Syrian man in custody confessed to killing a 21-year-old woman nearly two months ago in east Lebanon, the Internal Security Forces said in a statement Tuesday.

The body of a woman was found on Dec. 27, 2013 in a Baalbek swamp without any identification. Police conducted DNA tests and identified the woman by her initials, G.H.

After thorough investigation, police arrested a Syrian man identified as S.M.,43, who lived nearby the house of the woman’s father.

During interrogation, the man confessed to stabbing the woman and throwing her body in the swamp. He also told investigators he waited 10 minutes until he was sure she died.
