Texas prison officials say an inmate serving a life sentence for capital murder in Bexar County has confessed to the slaying of a fellow inmate earlier this month at a Southeast Texas prison.
Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokesman Jason Clark says while the slaying remains under investigation, Alfred Brosig told authorities he killed 57-year-old Kenneth Johnson at the Ramsey I Unit in Brazoria County, south of Houston, on Jan. 17.
The Houston Chronicle reports other inmates say Johnson had a radio cord wrapped around his neck and Brosig blew "farewell kisses" as he was led from his cell.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Brusig's prison record goes back to 1990. He's now in a prison psychiatric unit.
Johnson was serving 18 years for engaging in organized criminal activity in Navarro County, south of Dallas.
