NASHUA, N.H. (AP) – Jurors in a deadly New Hampshire home invasion and machete attack trial are listening to recordings of the admitted killer denying his role in the crime.
Twenty-one-year-old Christopher Gribble says he hacked to death Kimberly Cates and thought he had killed her 11-year-old daughter. But he is trying to convince jurors he is not guilty by reason of insanity.
On Tuesday, jurors heard three hours of a taped interrogation of Gribble by police the day after the 2009 home invasion. During that segment, Gribble denies any involvement in the crimes.
As court opened Wednesday, Gribble continued to deny involvement. It is later in the interrogation that Gribble realized investigators had more information and he gave them a detailed account of the attack and the planning that led up to it.
