Police: Man says he killed woman, drove body to Wyoming

This undated photo provided by the Park County Sheriff's Office shows Jonathan Eugene Akin, 22, of Thornton, Colorado, who was arrested in Powell last Tuesday after police say he confessed to killing his girlfriend in their apartment and driving through Wyoming with her body in his vehicle. He faces a charge of mutilation of a dead body in Wyoming.

POWELL — A man who was arrested in northwest Wyoming after police say he confessed to killing his girlfriend in their suburban Denver apartment has agreed to be extradited to Colorado.

The Powell Tribune reported Tuesday that 22-year-old Jonathan Akin initially declined to sign an extradition waiver but agreed after speaking with his court-appointed attorney.

Authorities say Akin surrendered to police in Powell on Nov. 27, and officers found 21-year-old Autumn Rivera dead in the trunk of his car.

According to an arrest warrant, Akin told authorities he killed Rivera in Thornton, Colorado, but he did not remember how because he had "blacked out." Akin then drove to Wyoming and spent the night at his mother's house in Deaver.
