The officers found McManaman on the floor of her kitchen with multiple lacerations and stab wounds, officials said.

Soon after the discovery, police identified Burnett as the suspect and shared his picture with the media. Within a day, he ended the manhunt by turning himself in to authorities.

Police said he also confessed to killing McManaman.
