A man is charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend after confessing to his attorney, who then called Pasadena police and reported the crime, officials said.

The lawyer called police just before noon Friday and told them where they could find the victim's body: in her home at Cinnamon Ridge Apartments on Spencer Highway.

Detectives went to the attorney's office to talk to the suspect -- 26-year-old Ivan David Franco. As they spoke to him, officers gained entrance to the woman's apartment and found her body.

The victim is identified as BriAnna Hope Wasinger, 26. According to police, she was killed Wednesday.

Franco was charged with murder. He was out of jail Sunday after posting $50,000 bond.

Additional details, including how the Wisinger was killed, have not been released. At last check, investigators at the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences were working to determine how she died. Please stay with Eyewitness News and abc13.com for updates.
