ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Police say a New York man told them he "just snapped" and killed his girlfriend with his fists and a curling iron while visiting her college dorm last month.

A Monroe County Sheriff's Office report released Wednesday says 21-year-old Clayton Whittemore detailed the killing to an officer on Sept. 29. Whittemore had been arrested earlier that day.

The report says Whittemore said he and 18-year-old Alexandra Kogut got into a shoving match while arguing over "stupid stuff" in her room at the State University of New York College at Brockport. It says he told the officer when her breathing sounded bad he hit her with a curling iron because he loved her and didn't want her to suffer.

The Utica College student pleaded not guilty during his initial court appearance. His murder arraignment is Oct. 25.
