Highlights of Granger trial testimony from Wednesday

GALVESTON - By Megan Dillard - Several law enforcement investigators testified Wednesday in the capital murder trial against Bartholomew Granger. Some of those witnesses testified the 42-year-old defendant made statements at the hospital where paramedics transported him after officer took him into custody, March 14, 2012.

Below are some of the statements Granger made, according to the investigators who testifed Wednesday.

One Beaumont Police officer testified Granger said, "I had to shoot them. I had no chance."

The officer said Granger also said, referring to Judge John B.

Stevens, "Judge Stevenson is corrupt. He deserved to die." According to that officer, Granger's words continue:

"How much can a man take?"

"They treat me like a killer. I'm going to act like a killer.:

"My intent was to kill them. They don't deserve to live."

"I wanted to kill those three: Claudia, Rebecca, Samantha. They set me up."

"I had to prove a point to them. You can't go around lying to people."

"I'm sorry I killed someone else."

A detective with the Beaumont Police Department also repeated what he heard Granger say in the hospital.

"If they're going to treat me like a killer, I'm going to act like a killer."

"It's good to go to jail for something that's worth it."

That detective described Granger's tone of voice as matter-of-fact.

Another BPD officer testifed. He said Granger said, "My intentions were for the freaks so if I killed anyone else, I'm sorry."

He said Granger said, referring to Judge John B. Stevens, "Judge Stevens deserved to die. He's a demon."

And in what prosecutors called an ironic statment, an investigator testified Granger said, "I would take a bullet for my kids."

Testimony continues Thursday. Stay with KFDM and for more on the trial from Galveston.
