Riverside County parolee who took dead woman to sheriff's station gets life sentence
Jason Richard Budrow, 31, flagged down a deputy outside the Lake Elsinore sheriff's station in October 2010 and said that he had killed a woman and had her body in the trunk of his car, according to the Riverside County district attorney's office.
Budrow, a registered sex offender, had a previous conviction for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl and served time in state prison, according to prosecutors.
Authorities said Budrow killed Margret Dalton, 48, because he believed that she was a police informant. Dalton died of strangulation.
Budrow entered a guilty plea in Superior Court on Wednesday and waived his right to appeal the sentence, the district attorney's office said.
