Convicted child killer confesses to one more.


Authorities say a man already serving life in prison for killing two children is also responsible for the disappearance and death of a Westfield, Massachusetts teenager.   Hampden District Attorney Mark Mastroianni announced Monday that Lewis Lent has confessed to killing 16-year-old James Lusher.   Lusher was never seen again after leaving his home on a bicycle ride in November 1992.    Lent was convicted of the 1990 killing of 12-year-old Jimmy Bernardo of Pittsfield. He also pleaded guilty to the 1993 abduction and slaying of 12-year-old Sara Ann Wood of Norwich Corners, New York. Her body was never found.
 
Mastroianni says a search for Lusher's remains will take place at a pond in Becket.
