Janitor Confesses to Killing Priest

The janitor of St. Patrick's Church confessed to stabbing a Catholic priest 32 times, killing the 61-year-old reverend in Chatham, New Jersey. Jose Feliciano, a longtime custodian at the church, has been arrested and charged with murder in the attack on Rev. Edward Hinds. The case's prosecutor said Hinds was killed with a kitchen knife. Feliciano told authorities that he and the priest got in an argument, and the janitor returned to the rectory where he stabbed Hinds in the face, neck, and back. The police found a bloody T-shirt and bloody rags at Feliciano's home, along with the priest's missing cellphone.
