Prosecutors: Suspect in landlord killing confessed

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - Court documents say a Brooklyn man accused of abducting and killing a landlord confessed to police - because his father, a pastor, told him not to lie.

News reports Saturday say court documents show Kendel Felix initially refused to talk to police but then spoke after being asked whether his father would want him to tell the truth.

The 26-year-old Felix pleaded not guilty to murder and kidnapping in Menachem Stark's death. Stark was abducted while leaving his office during a snowstorm Jan. 2.

His charred body was later found in a trash bin. Felix was arrested in April.

According to the court documents, Felix told police the killing happened during a botched robbery. He said three other men were involved in the kidnapping. No one else has been arrested.
