LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 65-year-old ex-convict accused in two Las Vegas cold case slayings is hinting there's more to his case than police allegations that he's a serial killer.
Nathaniel Burkett's closed-circuit jailhouse video interview with the Las Vegas Review-Journal (http://bit.ly/MCFvGo ) was cut short Wednesday by a defense lawyer.
But first he said some unspecified things "need to come out."
Burkett arrived in Las Vegas this week following his arrest last month in Picayune, Miss.
He's due in court Friday on multiple charges in the separate rape-strangulations of 22-year-old Barbara Ann Cox in April 1978 and 27-year-old Tina Gayle Mitchell in February 1994. Both were found in a neighborhood northwest of downtown Las Vegas
Police say Burkett has used various birthdates and names.
They say DNA evidence links him to both crimes.
