A Victorian man has admitted performing an indecent act on an 11-year-old girl before murdering her at a party at her own home.

Mildura man Bowe Maddigan, 30, appeared before the Supreme Court of Victoria on Friday where he pleaded guilty to committing an indecent act with a child under 16 and murder.

Zoe Buttigieg's body was found by her mother in the family's Inchbold Street home in Wangaratta last October.

Police found Maddigan walking barefoot along a freeway around 10 kilometres from Zoe's house hours before the 11-year-old's body was discovered.

The court on Friday heard that psychological reports on Maddigan would be prepared before his plea hearing scheduled for November 11 in Wangaratta.
