Judge denies motion to throw out serial killer’s confession
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A judge just threw out the latest request from an alleged serial killer linked to multiple cold cases in Albuquerque.
Two years ago, investigators say Paul Apodaca confessed to three murders dating back to the late ’80s.
However, his attorney said that confession was no good – claiming that the way officers got it was “unconstitutional.”
On Monday, a judge ruled that the majority of Apodaca’s statements will be used in his trial, which is expected to happen sometime next year.
