GREENSBURG, Ind. (WISH) — A Greensburg man walked into the police department earlier this week and admitted to killing his girlfriend.

Police preliminary charged Jason Eaton, 43, with murder and a firearm sentencing enhancement.

According to court documents, Eaton walked into the station on Tuesday and said he killed his girlfriend, Wendy Sabatini.
