A Virginia man has pleaded guilty to the rape and murder of a 17-year-old Muslim girl whom he attacked near a mosque during Ramadan.
Darwin Martinez Torres, 25, assaulted Nabra Hassanen on 18 June 2017 in Sterling, about 30 miles (48km) west of Washington DC.
Torres admitted all eight counts in a plea deal that will spare him the possibility of the death penalty.
Investigators said they found no evidence it was a hate crime.
Nabra and her friends were walking back to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque after a pre-dawn, fast-food meal when Torres pulled over in what police described as a road rage incident.
The construction worker drove at the group before jumping out of his car wielding a baseball bat and grabbing Nabra.
Her body was found in a pond in Loudoun County, Virginia.
