CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - A judge has ruled that a videotaped interview detectives conducted with a New Jersey father accused of killing his 3-year-old son can be entered as evidence at his murder trial.

David Creato Jr.’s attorney had argued that investigators misled his client and never told him he was a suspect during the interview. But state Superior Court Judge John Kelley rejected those arguments Tuesday, noting that Creato appeared willing and even “anxious” to cooperate with investigators.

Kelly also announced Tuesday that Creato’s trial would start Oct. 3. He has pleaded not guilty to murder and child endangerment charges

Camden County prosecutors have said the boy suffered “homicidal violence.” They say the 22-year-old Haddon Township man killed his son because the boy was impeding his relationship with a teenage girlfriend who allegedly resented Creato’s dealings with the child’s mother.
