CAMBRIDGE — A man faces murder charges after appearing at the Cambridge Police Department’s headquarters Friday night covered in blood and telling officers “I killed her.”
Dion D. Ennals, 31 of Cambridge, arrived at the backdoor of the police station at approximately 7:40 p.m. and made the chilling confession, according to police.
Officers detained Ennals after his admission and he also told officers “she is probably still laying there,” according to police.
CPD said “Ennals could not give an exact location so he was placed in a patrol vehicle at which time directed officers to the area of 22 Washington Street which is the roadway leading to the old Phillips Packing House buildings.”
Officers found the victim in the roadway “in a large pool of blood.”
She was identified as Roshanda S. Willis, 39 of Cambridge. She was pronounced dead at the scene.
Detectives said they were able to locate “surveillance footage of the incident taking place which showed Ennals violently beat the victim for an extended period before leaving the victim’s lifeless body and walking toward the Cambridge Police Department,” according to a CPD release.
Ennals said the incident stemmed from relationship problems with Willis, according to police. He faces first and second degree murder and first and second degree assault charges, according to police.
