NORMAN, Oklahoma -- Oklahoma City police said Friday they have recovered the remains of a female from the backyard of a Norman home, but they don't know yet if they belong to Angela Biggers.

Police began digging in the yard Thursday afternoon after hearing a confession from murder suspect Ronald Banks.

Banks is suspected of killing 48-year-old Biggers. She was last seen December 6. Banks was arrested a few days later in Fort Worth, Texas, and charged with first-degree murder.

According to News 9's sources, Banks told an investigator that he and Biggers were arguing in her car on Interstate 240. Banks said he strangled Biggers with a telephone cord then buried her body in the backyard of 1100 Fountain Gate Court in Norman.

Banks reportedly said he buried her there because he knew the house was vacant because he had friends who had lived there.

The remains will now be turned over to the medical examiner's office to be identified.
