      Murder suspects fight to have confession thrown out

      YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- Two men accused of murdering a woman in a movie theater parking lot are fighting to have a confession thrown out.

      Lawyers for Juan Ibanez-Cortes fought to keep his confession from being admitted as evidence. Documents said Cortes told police he helped hide a gun after John Munzanreder shot and killed his wife.

      Witnesses are expected to testify for another couple of days before a ruling is made on whether the confession can be used at trial.
