PLACERVILLE, CA - Steven Colver, charged with murdering his ex-girlfriend's mother, claims Tylar Witt, the girlfriend, acted alone in killing Joanna Witt.
Tylar said, "Boston (Colver's nickname), I did it. I finally did it. My mom's gone forever," Colver testified on the stand Thursday afternoon in El Dorado County Superior Court.
Joanne Witt, 47, was stabbed to death in the bedroom of her El Dorado Hills home in June 2009.
Colver said he covered Witt's body with a Sponge Bob blanket.
Earlier, Colver recounted for the court he was taking classes at Folsom Lake College while working full-time at a Rubio's restaurant when he met the then 14-year-old Tylar Witt at a local coffee shop. He told the court she asked him to guess how old she was and he said 16. She said yes, Colver said. He was 19.
