BTK killer 'revealed sex motive'

The man who confessed to the "Bind, Torture, Kill" murders in the US had a sexual motive in picking his first victims, a sentencing judge has heard.

Killer Dennis Rader told police he targeted Josephine Otero, 11, because he was attracted to Hispanics.

Rader, a former church leader, pleaded guilty in June to the murders of 10 people in the city of Wichita in Kansas between 1974 and 1991.

He faces up to 175 years in jail in a hearing which is set to last two days.

Kansas state had no death penalty when the murders were committed.

'Younger women'

Special agent Raymond Lundin gave the court details of a police interview conducted after Rader's arrest in February.

Relatives of victims had to hear very distressing testimony

"He said that he has always been attracted to Hispanic looking people - dark eyes, dark hair, dark skin. He said Josey was the one who caught his eye and she was his target," Mr Lundin said, noting that Rader also told him he was attracted to "younger women". --
