Confession in Church Shooting

A Georgia prosecutor says a man accused of killing his estranged wife and another man at a New Jersey church has confessed to the shooting rampage.

Walton County Assistant District Attorney Eric Crawford says
27-year-old Joseph Pallipurath gave a videotaped confession on Tuesday, hours after he was arrested at a motel 40 miles east of Atlanta.

He's accused of killing his 24-year-old wife and a church member
on Sunday and critically wounding his wife's cousin.

Crawford says Pallipurath told investigators he would have
killed everyone in the church if he'd had a machine gun.

Pallipurath told authorities he was unhappy that church members
were blocking his attempts to contact his wife, who had left him
three months ago.
