Police in Jacksonville, Florida are holding in custody a teenage boy who confessed to killing a man because he was spreading rumors that he was gay. Hector Sanchez, 19, is expected to make his first court appearance this week.

Jacksonville police found the body of 24-year-old Levi Rollins slumped-over in the back seat of a car parked at Riverside Memorial Park in July. Employees at the cemetery said that the car had been parked there for two days.

Sanchez stepped forward in September and told the police that he had shot Rollins because he was angry at him for spreading rumors that he was gay and “decided to do something about it,” reports the Jacksonville CBS affiliate WJXT.

In his confession, Sanchez admits to killing Rollings after the pair shared a marijuana smoke and killed the man while parked at an apartment complex lot; shooting the man with a gun several times. He told police he then drove Rollins' car to the cemetery, where the police found his body two days later. After the shooting, he threw the gun off a bridge.

Sanchez was charged with murder and remains in custody without bond at the Duval County jail as he awaits his first court appearance scheduled this week.
