Radio Newsman's Teen Sex Murderer Arrested (Updated)
Apparently George Weber, the radio reporter found slain in his Brooklyn apartment on Monday, had brought a 16-year-old home for some sex that weekend. The youth, who is in police custody, said the sex was solicited via Craigslist, paid for, of a violent nature -- and got out of hand. The kids said he had been offered $60 to "smother" Weber but instead duct-taped his arms and legs and stabbed him a bunch of times and ransacked his apartment. He now says he blacked out and didn't know what he was doing, which will no doubt feature in his defense. It is not known whether Weber knew or cared how old the kid was. Update 11:30 a.m.: Killer named and seen all over the internet; see here.
