MARSHALL (KYTX) - A grand jury has indicted a 25-year-old Harrison County man in connection with the murder of his girlfriend.

Harrison County investigators said Rodris Webster confessed to killing 19-year-old Alicia Benefield and leaving her body in the woods off FM 13 near Waskom.

The sheriff says they spent 15 hours interviewing the boyfriend and allowing family members from both sides to encourage him to cooperate.

Investigators also believed the couple got into an argument that escalated and ended near where Benefield's body was found.
