MIDDLETOWN, OH (AP) - Police in southwest Ohio say a woman who confessed to killing her boyfriend and hiding his decomposing body in a bathtub for five days also tried to burn the body.

A Trenton police detective told a judge Monday that he found partly burned newspapers around the body of 47-year-old Keith Peyton earlier this month.

Joanna Hull told a 911 dispatcher that she had killed her boyfriend but didn't remember how or when. A Middletown judge ruled there was sufficient evidence to send the case against 42-year-old Hull to a Butler County grand jury to consider charges of aggravated murder, tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

Hull is being held on $265,000 bond.
