Judge: only a portion of interview with accused murderer may be used at trial

By  | 

BANGOR, Maine (WABI) - Police say a man accused of killing two homeless people in Bangor last spring confessed.

But part of what he said will not be allowed to be used in his trial.

25-year-old John De St. Croix pled not guilty to murder and arson.

Court documents say he told authorities he'd been drinking with 43-year-old Michael Bridges and 36-year-old Desiree York in the hours before the pair was found dead inside a burning box truck.

Authorities say De St. Croix is the one who called 9-1-1.

Police say when they interviewed him on March 30th, he confessed.

A judge ruled the prosecution will only be able to use part of that interview.

But the first seventeen pages of the statements made by De St. Croix that day will allowed as evidence at his trial next March.
