WICHITA FALLS, Texas (KAUZ) - The third day of the Corey Trumbull trial has concluded.

Trumbull is being charged with the murder of his girlfriend’s son, Logan Cline.

Prosecutors provided audio of detectives trying to get the truth out of Trumbull.

Detective Cliff Mogg with the Las Vegas Police Department took the stand and reviewed an audio discussion with Trumbull.

At the beginning of the tape, Trumbull shared with the detective that his biggest regret was not calling 911 after Johnson continuously beat and tortured the boy.

He told detectives he saw so much of himself in Logan; he repeatedly said Stormy Johnson, Logan’s mother, was the abuser, and he just followed her lead.

Once Detective Mogg told Trumbull his alibi didn’t match what Stormy Johnson or Lexi Cline told him, Trumbull’s story quickly changed.

He said he only hit the victim once with the makeshift weapon due to Logan’s misbehaving.

Moments later, he confessed he punched Logan in the head, causing the 11-year-old to fall and have a seizure.

He told Detective Mogg after punching Logan, “I just remembered everything just got gradually worse.”

He confessed that he knew Logan needed serious medical attention but feared going to jail.

Towards the end of the recording, he questioned his reason for being interrogated since he said he didn’t do anything.

Due to scheduling conflicts, the trial is set to resume on August 28 at 9 a.m.
