CEDAR RAPIDS - Families of two teens murdered last year heard the brutal details of their last night. Prosecutors say Kyle Marin met up with his friends

Molly Edmondson and Katrina Hill, and then killed them. On Wednesday, Marin's confession was played in court.

In a dark courtroom, the families of the victims heard details no parent wants to hear. About how Kyle Marin says he snapped one night, after partying with his friends, he felt the urge to destroy their apartment and, in Marin's own words, couldn't get enough from that. So he killed the teens.

Marin told the detectives that after he killed the teens, he went into the guest bedroom to fall asleep.

When Marin woke up, he drove to a parking ramp to consider jumping from the top. He didn't, and says that's because he wanted to see his mother one last time.

When the teens were found, they were naked and doctors checked them for sexual assault at the hospital. Marin said he didn't have sex with them. The prosecution tried to show random hairs and cuts suggested otherwise. The doctors never gave an official opinion, neither side ever asked for one.
