Stayner Lawyers Try To Bar Confession

Lawyers for Yosemite killer Cary Stayner again sought Monday to bar his confession from his triple-murder trial, pressing two FBI agents for details about how he was arrested.

This is the third day of a San Jose hearing on whether the FBI improperly obtained Stayner´s confession.

Defense lawyer Marcia Morrissey asked when Stayner was read his Miranda rights, when he knew he was under arrest and how the FBI got a search warrant for his car.

Echoing testimony other agents made last week, Agent John Boles said Stayner appeared willing to talk even after being read his rights.

Boles said the agent who led the interrogation told Stayner he was sympathetic about what Stayner went through as a child, when he was molested and his brother was abducted.

Boles said Stayner didn´t get emotional. The agent added that he saw Stayner “try to cry,” but he did not elaborate.
