COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - A man on federal death row for killing a South Carolina woman says he's trying to help find another victim's body.

In a letter to The Associated Press, Chadrick Fulks says he wants to help find the body of West Virginia college student Samantha Burns.

Fulks was convicted in 2004 in the death of South Carolina mother Alice Donovan during a crime spree. Fulks led searchers to remains authorities have identified as belonging to Donovan.

Fulks has pleaded guilty to killing Burns. Now, he's communicating with a search team trying to find her body. Teams are returning to West Virginia next month.

Fulks says he's not doing it for leniency. He says he feels encouraged because he helped searchers find Donovan.
