Birmingham man admits killing ex-partner

A man has admitted killing his former partner whose body was found in a burnt out car in Birmingham.

The body of Tia Kounota, 27, was discovered in an Audi in Fentham Road, Erdington, in July 2014.

A post mortem test proved inconclusive, but showed she had suffered a head wound before the car was set alight, police said.

Damian Dinobewei, 35, from Pershore Road, Stirchley, pleaded guilty to manslaughter at Birmingham Crown Court.

He is due to be sentenced at a later date.

West Midlands Police said the couple had been in a "volatile" relationship before Ms Kounota decided to end it.
