A suspect has admitted to killing Lisa Marie Naegle, a former reality TV contestant on the E! Network’s “Bridalplasty” with a hammer after learning she was getting back with her husband.

According to a TMZ, Jackie Jerome Rogers, a 34-year-old nursing student told investigators he hit Lisa Marie Naegle seven times in the back of her head before burying her naked body in the backyard of his home in Lennox, Calif.

Police arrested Rogers early Wednesday on suspicion of murder early Wednesday after police and coroner officials discovered her remains in a shallow grave late Tuesday night, KNBC reported.

Investigators questioned Rogers late Monday but haven’t released details of the conversations.

Naegle appeared on “Bridalplasty” in 2010, where she was on the losing end of a competition for an extravagant wedding and plastic surgery.

Lisa Marie Naegle, 36, was pictured with Jackie Jerome Rogers at a birthday party at the Alpine Village Restaurant in Torrance, California on Saturday night just hours before he allegedly killed her

According to the Daily Breeze, Neagle worked at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center as a registered nurse and at West Los Angeles College, where she taught nursing courses.

Her husband Derek Harryman said he last spoke to Naegle on Saturday. She had told him that she on her way to a birthday party.

Harryman said around 2 a.m. he messaged her for an update on her whereabouts.

“Within a minute or two, she called, she sounded really, really drunk. She said, ‘I’m going to get some food and then I’ll be home.,” ” Harryman told the newspaper. “

He husband later added he received a call from the Uber driver she always used to take her to work, informing him Naegle never showed up for her scheduled classes on Sunday.

Harryman told the Daily Breeze the couple was going to a fertility clinic in an effort to have a child.

Naegle’s sister and brother took to social media in search of their sister after complaining police were too slow to investigate.

After discovering Neagle had attended a party with Rogers — who she claimed was gay, they questioned him about the whereabouts of their sister.

Rodgers reportedly told them she left without him and to attend another party and had no idea where he was.

However, a friend who worked at the Alpine Village Restaurant in Torrance,  the venue of the party where she was last seen, came forward with surveillance footage showing Naegle leaving the party with Rogers’ and getting into his SUV.

“We looked at the film, and she left with him, He told everybody he left without her.”

According to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Rogers is currently in custody on a $2 million bail. Jail records haven’t indicated whether he has retained an attorney to represent him.
