'Baby Hope' slaying suspect denies he killed her

Posted: Updated:

NEW YORK (AP) - The man charged with sexually assaulting and smothering a 4-year-old New York City girl in 1991 denies he killed her but admits he helped dispose of the body.

Conrado Juarez tells The New York Times that Anjelica Castillo died in a fall down the stairs.

The police say Juarez confessed to assaulting the child and smothering her with a pillow to stifle her screams. Juarez told the Times his confession was coerced.

The 52-year-old kitchen worker was arrested last Friday on a charge of second-degree murder.

Police had been searching for Anjelica's killer ever her body was found 22 years ago in a cooler by the roadside in upper Manhattan. She had long been known only as "Baby Hope," the name investigators gave her.

Juarez's jailhouse interview was published in Friday's Times.
