SHAMOKIN, Pa. — Police in Shamokin say an officer walked into the lobby of the police station Tuesday afternoon to find Andre Stone sitting in a chair. 

Stone allegedly told the officer, "I killed my girlfriend; I wanted to tell you." 

Stone proceeded to show the officer a picture on his phone of a female laying on the floor. 

Stone said, "I couldn't take it anymore, and I strangled her." 

That conversation happened around 2:30 Tuesday afternoon.

Police questioned Stone, who told them he strangled the victim and had a knife in case he couldn't do it.

Officers went to the home along South Market Street, where they found a white female in her 40's unresponsive.
