Corey M. Green of Glen Burnie admitted yesterday that he killed his former girlfriend, the mother of his 6-year-old son, by shooting her in the head, the county state's attorney's office said.

Green, 28, of the 800 block of Pamela Road pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and use of a handgun in the commission of a violent crime, said Anne Colt Leitess, assistant state's attorney for Anne Arundel County.

On Aug. 3, Green, who had been an automobile mechanic at the Saturn dealership in Ellicott City, shot Latausha Lewis, 24, as she sat in the passenger seat of his 1987 Chevrolet Nova, Leitess said.

Three weeks earlier, Lewis had moved out of the Glen Burnie residence she had shared with Green and returned to her family's home on the 2400 block of Bridgehampton Drive in Baltimore, Leitess said.

Green dumped Lewis' body in the woods along Hog Farm Road near Cecil Avenue in Millersville and called county police that night from a relative's house in the 600 block of Cecil Ave. to turn himself in, Leitess said.

Police found the handgun, a .45-caliber Glock semiautomatic, at the home of another family member, also in the 600 block of Cecil Ave., Leitess said.

Green will be sentenced April 9.

Prosecutors are asking that he be sentenced to life plus 20 years.

Green's lawyer, John D. Thompson, was unavailable for comment.
