(WDSU) -- Louisiana's Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand says Matthew Flugence admitted to killing 6-year-old Ahlittia North.

North was killed early Saturday morning.

Her body was later found in a trash bin near her home.

Investigators had identified Flugence as a person of interest earlier in the investigation and formally named him the primary suspect on Tuesday afternoon. Officials said he also has been connected to a sexual assault on an 11-year-old girl.
