    MEXICO CITY -- Mexico City police have in custody two alleged serial killers -- one, a female former professional wrestler suspected in the deaths of ten elderly women; the other, a 29-year-old man accused of luring homosexuals away bars and killing them.

    The news was shocking to a city accustomed to crime, but which rarely sees serial killings.
    Police said the former Mexican soldier would torture his victims before hanging them, and even carved a star into the forehead of one man.


    Wednesday, police detained former professional wrestler Juana Barraza, saying she'd been captured while fleeing a house where an 82-year-old woman had been strangled with a stethoscope.


    Mexico City Attorney General Bernardo Batiz said Barraza has been linked to the deaths of at least ten elderly Mexico City women.
