SPOKANE, Wash. -

Court documents released Wednesday show that Tony Callihan admitted killing a Spokane woman last Friday.

Last Thursday night around 10 p.m. Callihan  drove to an acquaintance's house in a green 2006 Dodge Stratus owned by Michelle Koenen. The acquaitance "chastised" him for driving with a suspended license, to which Callihan replied, "Don't worry about that, that's the least of my worries."

He collected up his clothes, borrowed some money and left, only to return at 5 a.m. Friday morning, appeared emotionally upset and said he had "just killed a girl."

Callihan explained he got into a fight with a girl at a "meth party" in a house near the Broadway Market and he shoved and choked her.

When he showed up at his acquaintance's house he was driving Koenen's car.

Koenen's body was found later that day in a residence across from the Broadway Market in West Central Spokane.

Callihan was spotted on Monday in Ellensburg. He stole some gas from a Central Washington University greenskeeper, who was able to get the license plate number off his car before he fled the scene. The license plate number came up for Koenen's car.
