Teen's taped confession to be heard in court

TOLEDO -- There are new details today in the case of Robert Jobe, who has been accused of killing Det. Keith Dressel.

The jury will be allowed to view the crime scene, and statements and physical evidence regarding Jobe's taped confession will be allowed.

After police caught Jobe, detectives interrogated him and got it all on tape. Defense attorneys have argued the tapes can't be used, saying officers didn't play by the rules.

Detectives say Jobe confessed to shooting Dressel because Jobe was drunk, Dressel had grabbed him and he wanted to feel grown up. Jobe's attorneys say those statements were made after the teen had asked several times for an attorney. They say future jurors should not hear the confession.
