The caretaker of a Texas priest home in Mexico admitted to killing the 69 year-old reverend and he told police he and the priest were intimately involved.
Manuel Martin Torres told Nuevo Laredo police and reporters that he attacked Rev. Jesse Euresti of Austin with a machete. Torres, who is from Honduras, says he killed the priest after learning Texan planned to kick him out after Euresti recently had met someone else.
Euresti vanished last week after going to the Nuevo Laredo retirement house he bought in September to do repairs.
