DOWNTOWN EL PASO- The detective who allegedly got Daniel Villegas to confess to double homicide when he was a teenager took the witness stand on Thursday morning.
Detective Al Marquez testified that the men whom Villegas's new defense team claims to be responsible for the murders were suspects in the original case. Marquez says they received multiple leads from the public saying Rodolfo Flores and his brother Javier were responsible for the killings.
Marquez testified that multiple people other than Villegas confessed to the crime, and often people do confess to crimes they didn't commit.
Daniel Villegas is set to take the witness stand Thursday afternoon.
