A man has been charged with murder after he confessed to killing a 26-year-old Manatee County woman and wrapping her up in a bed sheet in a Bradenton hotel on Sunday, according to the Sheriff's Office.

Authorities have not identified the woman citing state laws that protect victims. She was found at the Americas Best Value Inn early Sunday afternoon. She suffered trauma to multiple areas of her body.

The Manatee County Sheriff's Office arrested Manatee County resident Steven Cozens, 34. He has been charged with second-degree murder.

There is an active Risk Protection Order against Cozens that was filed in May 2021, citing mental health issues and concerns that he could be violent toward others, according to 12th Judicial Circuit Court records.

The investigation by authorities remains ongoing.
