Judge Allows Confession in Va. Double Slaying

A judge said prosecutors can use the confession of a woman charged with killing her husband's ex-wife and his 8-year-old son in Prince William County.

Lawyers for Natalia Wilson claimed statements she made to police were coerced. The News and Messenger reported that a judge last week refused to suppress the statements, ruling they were made voluntarily.

Wilson is charged with capital murder in the 2010 stabbing deaths of 8-year-old Paul Wilson and the boy's mother, 41-year-old Slavka Naydenova.

The case has received international attention because Naydenova was from a prominent Bulgarian family. Naydenova's brother, Iliya Pavlov, was a billionaire who was fatally shot in 2003, a day after testifying in the murder trial of five men charged in the assassination of former Prime Minister Andrei Lukanov.
