Serial killer Mohan Kumar, arrested on the charge of murdering 19 women, has confessed to killing one more woman by giving cyanide capsule, police said on Monday.

He had told the police during interrogation that his 20th victim was Poornima, a 35 year-old music teacher from Bekur, under Manjeshwar police station limits.

The psychopath, who was nabbed on October 21 for killing 19 women, after luring them into his death-bait with the promise of marriage, was in police custody since then and would be produced before the Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) at Bantwal on Monday, police said.
