SHELBYVILLE, IL. —
During the lengthy interrogation, the investigators were receiving incoming information about the murder. After hours of questioning, the investigators told Newlin that Pease had told them everything and pressed Newlin for the truth.
Newlin admitted that he was “disgusted with Jeremy Morgan.” Newlin said he was tired of paying for everything, and said that Morgan had “busted me upside the head” and was “bullying me”.
“We got into fist fights over every little thing. I asked him to move out before,” Newlin said. “I was tired of it.”
He then talked to Pease about getting rid of Morgan and a plan was created.
“I could have stopped it, but I didn’t,” Newlin said.
The defense is expected to present its case Thursday.
