A chess confession

NORFOLK — Over a game of chess in a jail medical ward, Anthony Juniper confessed to another inmate that he had killed Keshia Stephens, according to testimony today....

Juniper’s chess partner, Ernest Smith, testified wearing the black-and-white stripes of the Norfolk City Jail. He said he met Juniper in the Hampton Roads Regional Jail, where they were both being held in October.

As they played chess, Smith testified, he asked Juniper if he had killed Stephens.

“He said he killed Keshia and killed the kids because he didn’t want to leave witnesses,” Smith testified....
