“She was my girlfriend and I knew her for just two months before this incident happened. I had to sleep with her corpse after killing her.
“It was strange sleeping with a corpse. I never had sex with her when she was alive because she never gave me that opportunity.
“I was always giving her money but she didn’t allow us to have sex with her,’’ Ushie confessed.
