Jurors hear the interview of Matthew Hinrichsen in Day 3 of his double murder trial


Day three of testimony is underway in the double-murder trial of Matthew Hinrichsen in a Neligh, Nebraska courtroom.

Hinrichsen is charged with killing his ex-girlfriend, Victoria Lee Vargas and her husband, Alex Vargas in their home near Ewing last December.

They had been shot and their trailer set on fire.

Wednesday, jurors heard the interview of Hinrichsen conducted in the Madison County Jail the night of the killings.

Hinrichsen claimed at that time that he did not remember what had happened that night.

He told investigators he thought that he and Victoria Lee were still together.

When she announced her marriage to Vargas, Hinrichsen said the pain was so bad that he wanted to die.

KTIV's Kayah Gausman will have the latest from the courtroom on News 4.
