    From October 2006:


    Gilberto Cruz was being held Friday at the Jefferson County Detention Facility... Police originally arrested him under the alias Eduardo Espinosa-Martinez...

    When contacted by police, Cruz confessed to killing Duran. He said he had been planning for about a week to kill her if she didn't reconcile with him...

    He had a sawed-off shotgun and three shells under his shirt. When she refused to be with him again, he put a shell in the gun but it did not fire. She struggled with him for the gun briefly and then ran out of the house...
