The state attorney's office released on Wednesday an interview with convicted murderer Jesse Davis, in which he describes the slaying of two Winter Park teens back in April.

Local 6 has obtained the audio interview and is in the process of going through it. You can listen to the audio at the link below, but warning, the content may be graphic.


Davis walked investigators through what happened step-by-step, from when he shot and killed the teens, to when he set fire to their bodies.

"I got out of the car and I shot the first one. The white kid, I shot him one time only," Davis said.

When asked if the teens were standing, Davis replied, "they were standing and I shot the black kid with the .22."

Davis was found guilty of murdering two teenagers -- 16-year-old Nicholas Presha and 18-year-old Jeremy Stewart -- along the Cady Way Trail on April 15. He entered a guilty plea on all charges at an emergency plea hearing in November and was sentenced to life in prison on 2 counts of first degree murder and 2 counts of kidnapping to life in prison with time served. He was also sentenced to life in prison on his attempted murder charges from a prior incident.

Hector Rodriguez is also charged with the death of the teens. He's set to stand trial next year.
