The father of two slain children testified Monday that the FBI “put words in my mouth” and said he felt pressured to confess to murdering the two children despite his innocence.

“I was just going along for no reason,” said Travis DuBois Sr., disavowing a confession made days after the killings. “I don’t know why. It’s not true.”

DuBois was the original prime suspect of the 2011 murders of his 9-year-old daughter and 6-year-old son.
