Police: Kentucky man killed Arizona woman in hotel room

FLORENCE, Ky. (AP) — Police in Kentucky say a man named Jesse James told them he killed an Arizona woman in a rented hotel room.

Florence Police say 26-year-old Amanda D. Webster of Cameron, Arizona, was found dead at a Home 2 Suites on Saturday morning. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that officers soon learned the room was registered to 32-year-old Jesse A. James of Burlington, Kentucky.

Other officers had arrested a man acting strangely at the Florence Rave Cinema. The police statement Saturday says he had given officers false names and identifying information, and was being held for giving false information and identity theft.

That man later acknowledged his real name and told police he killed Webster that morning. It’s unclear whether James has a lawyer.
