NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — A New York City judge has ruled that videotaped confessions by a man charged with killing a boy who vanished in 1979 can be used at his upcoming murder trial.
Manhattan state Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley ruled Monday in Pedro Hernandez’s case.
Hernandez, 53, has pleaded not guilty to killing 6-year-old Etan Patz, who vanished while walking to his school bus stop. Patz was one of the first missing children ever pictured on a milk carton. The anniversary of his disappearance became National Missing Children’s Day.
