Choking is what I did, and I was pretty good at it;" and “They look in the bedrooms, nobody’s in there, nothin’s, you know, there’s my son’s room. Hey, this guy has a son, he’s not gonna hurt anybody.” He preferred choking to other forms of murder because “that was more personal and more rewarding than to shoot her.”
