Jurors watched video of a police interrogation on a double murder suspect. This as the lead detective in the Beard brother's case continued his testimony about what happened back in December of 2011. That's when Jarrad and Jerry Beard are accused of killing 18 year old Justin Hesketh and 16 year old Brandon Moore.

The chief investigating officer explained to jurors the details of the crime scene and his interviews with the suspects.

Suspect Jarrad Beard told police the way in which he angled the gun -- as he fired shots behind him while he ran. Defense attorneys claim the brothers shot the victims in self-defense.

The defense also asked the investigator to offer his opinion of how the younger defendant Jerry Beard acted after his interrogation.

Defense attorney: "Did he show any signs of remorse to you?"

Sgt. Paul Cervantes: "Oh yes, he appeared to be quite saddened by the whole thing?"

Defense attorney: "Were his eyes moist?"

Sgt. Paul Cervantes: "I think his eyes were moist."

Testimony in the trial continues Thursday.

In the video, Action News reporter Stephanie Stone has complete coverage on the story.
