Jury Hears Facebook Killing Suspect Describe Relationship with Victim

BANGOR, Maine - The jury in a Maine murder trial is listening to a recording of a police interview with the defendant in which he describes his relationship with a teenager he is charged with killing.

Twenty-one-year-old Kyle Dube , of Orono,  is on trial for the kidnapping and murder of 15-year-old Nichole Cable of Glenburn. Prosecutors say Dube used Facebook to lure Cable to her death.

The jury is spending part of Wednesday listening to the interview with Dube from May 16, 2013, after Nichole disappeared and before her body was discovered.

WABI-TV reports Dube says in the interview that Nichole "wanted a serious relationship'' with him and wanted him to stop seeing his girlfriend. The girlfriend has said Dube confessed the killing to her.

Prosecutors say the trial could end Thursday.
