CINCINNATI (AP) - A man in Iraqi custody has confessed to killing an American soldier from Ohio whose remains were found four years after insurgents captured him. An Army spokeswoman confirmed the confession, Friday, to The Associated Press. Matt Maupin was 20 years old when insurgents ambushed his fuel convoy near Baghdad in April 2004 and took him captive. His status wasn't known until his remains were found 2008. Maupin was from Batavia, in southwestern Ohio. The judge says the man is now being retried because of a paperwork problem. He described him as Iraqi and an al-Qaida leader.
