BALI, Indonesia — The boyfriend of Heather Mack has admitted to killing his girlfriend’s mother in Bali.

19-year old Tommy Schaeffer made the confession in an Indonesian court room today.

Schaefer argued it was in self-defense, telling the court Wiese-Mack attacked him in anger because she objected to the couple’s relationship and Heather’s pregnancy.

Wednesday, Heather Mack told the court Schaefer hit her mother with a metal bowl, which Schaeffer confirmed today.

The victim’s body was found, stuffed into a suitcase.

Mack is 8-months pregnant.

Both she and Schaefer may face a firing squad if they’re convicted.
