A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly killing his girlfriend and then pretending to be her for several weeks, police in South Korea said.
The 24-year-old suspect identified as Lee, confessed to killing 26-year-old Sunny Kim because she wanted to break up with him.
After Kim disappeared, Lee had been answering text messages using her phone pretending to be her.
The day of the murder, Kim was invited to begin her new job, but Lee sent a message to her employer, saying that she was not interested anymore.
After several weeks of pretending to be Kim, Lee turned himself in at a police station in Busan. He entered with cut and bleeding wrists, and told officers that he killed his girlfriend and buried the body.
He also tried to commit suicide. Kim was found in a suitcase buried in cement near her home.
