The State has called its sixth witness in the trial against murder accused Mortimer Saunders.
The man admitted to killing three-year-old Courtney Pieters, but insists it was not premeditated. He also admitted to necrophilia and pleaded not guilty to rape.
Little Courtney went missing from her home in May last year and her body was found buried in a shallow grave in Epping industrial.
Police constable Bradley Spogter told the court that he found and arrested Saunders after receiving an anonymous tip-off from a woman who phoned him.
The State is expected to call on a maximum of four more witnesses to take the stand.
