RUSKIN | A southwest Florida man has been charged with second-degree murder after authorities say he buried his girlfriend's body under a porch.

Hillsborough County Sheriff's officials say 25-year-old Alejandro Flores-Sanchez admitted this week to fighting with his girlfriend, Angela Tavarez-Caballero. He said the 35-year-old suffered a fatal head injury before he buried her under the porch at their Ruskin home.

The Tampa Tribune (http://tinyurl.com/pt3ad8qP ) reports Flores-Sanchez was taken to the Orient Road Jail. It's unclear if he's retained legal representation.
