John Couey Confession

Convicted sex offender John Couey has confessed to killing Jessica Lunsford, but legal experts wonder whether a jury will be allowed to hear his admission in the kidnapping and killing of the nine-year-old girl.

Couey described the crime after asking for an attorney. He didn't get one until he outlined burying the girl alive near a mobile home in view of her house.

The death penalty is being sought against the 46-year-old convicted sex offender. Couey is being held without bail on a first degree murder charge.
