El Salvador man confesses murder of Dominican woman, son (ANSA) - Milan, March 5 - A man from El Salvador on Wednesday confessed to killing a woman friend from the Dominican Republic and her three-year-old son in a drunken frenzy after she refused his advances in Milan Tuesday. Victor Hugo Menjivar Gomez, 37, told police he drank 20 beers before going to the home of Libanny Mejia, 29.

He said he lost his head when she turned him down and reportedly murdered three-year-old Leandro because he had seen him kill his mother. The victims were found with their throats cut in a pool of blood.

Gomez, who had been at dinner with Mejia, went home with his son who was a friend of Leandro's.
