EATONTON, Ga. (AP) - One of two Georgia inmates accused of killing two guards last year admitted in a recorded interview that he shot the guards.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the recording of Ricky Dubose being interviewed by law enforcement after his arrest was played in court Wednesday.

Dubose and Donnie Rowe are accused of shooting Sgt. Christopher Monica and Sgt. Curtis Billue with the guards’ guns while escaping from a prison transfer bus southeast of Atlanta last June. They were arrested in Tennessee a few days later.

Both men face the death penalty.

The newspaper reports that Dubose told authorities the escape wasn’t planned, but that he seized an opportunity. He also said Rowe didn’t want to kill anyone.



Dubose’s attorneys are asking a judge not to allow the video confession at trial.
