Police say a Sugar Land teenager admits to killing a 16-year-old classmate and says his motive was "morbid curiosity."

Eighteen-year-old Matthew McCombs is accused of killing Ashton Glover more than a week ago.

McCombs was brought back to Texas yesterday after being arrested last week trying to enter Canada from Michigan.

A second suspect, 18-year-old Sean Brown of Sugar Land, has asked for a formal extradition hearing. He remains jailed in Michigan on five (M) million dollars bail.

The two are accused of killing Glover and then burying her body in a shallow grave at a remote construction site west of Missouri City.

Fort Bend County Sheriff Milton Wright says a pistol confiscated from McCombs' home has been linked to the killing.

McCombs is due in court today. Brown's extradition hearing is set for August eleventh.
