An Upper Darby man violated a protection of abuse order and stabbed his ex-girlfriend, whose body was found earlier this week near the Schuylkill River Trail, authorities announced Friday.

The investigation began on Thursday, when Freddy Remingio Mendieta Pando, 23, walked into Upper Darby police headquarters and told detectives through his cellphone translation application that he killed his partner -- Karina Torres, Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin R. Steele said.

Mendieta Pando showed the detectives on a map where Torres' body could be found: Adjacent to the Schuylkill River Trail in Lower Providence Township, near the Betzwood Trailhead. 

At 1:25 p.m., a Lower Providence Police detective found Torres' female lying face down in a wooded area approximately 15 feet off the Schuylkill River Trail, Steele said alongside Upper Darby Police Superintendent Timothy M. Bernhardt and Lower Providence Township Police Chief Michael Jackson.

The joint investigation by the Montgomery County Detectives and Lower Providence Township Police found that Torres had obtained a Protection From Abuse Order against Mendieta Pando that was in effect at the time of her murder.
