"I did the crime, I'll do the time," declared the man accused of killing Emilie Maheu when he appeared in Cornwall court Friday.

Brandon Smeltzer was charged with first-degree murder after the body of the 26-year-old Green Valley woman was found in a field near Lancaster October 13.

The 25-year-old man from Bayside, Nova Scotia later stated that he would "be with Emilie soon.”

He was put on suicide watch.
