DOVER, Del- A Kent County man who killed his girlfriend in their Leipsic residence last summer and attempted to dispose of her remains in a wooded lot nearby pleaded guilty Thursday morning, Attorney General Beau Biden announced.

"This defendant will spend a significant time in prison for the tragic death of this young woman," Biden said.

In September of 2013, local residents directed Delaware State Police to charred human remains in a wooded area along the 200 block of Denny Street.
 
Detectives identified the victim as 19 year-old Taylor M. Owens, who had been reported missing by her family earlier that week.  

At the time of her death detectives said Owens lived nearby with her boyfriend, 21 year-old Tony Mozick Jr., who was arrested on September 8 and charged with her death.
  
The charges alleged that Owens was killed by Mozick on August 31 during an altercation in their residence and that Mozick then moved the body to the wooded area where he tried to conceal the remains by burning them.

An autopsy later concluded that the victim's death was a homicide, however the Medical Examiner's office was unable to determine the cause of death.
  
A comprehensive investigation and a review of the evidence by prosecutors concluded that during altercation the victim fell and hit her head, resulting in her death.
  
Mozick pleaded guilty to manslaughter and abuse of a corpse and was sentenced to 15 years in prison.
