Calif. man in 'cannon' death says he's 'so sorry'Calif. man charged with girlfriend's murder says he wishes cannon-like device had killed him
EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) ' A San Diego County man charged with murder for firing a cannon-like device that killed his girlfriend says he's "so sorry" and he wishes he'd been the one killed.
In a tearful jail interview Friday on NBC San Diego, 39-year-old Richard Fox said if he could go back in time, he never would have fired the homemade device.
Prosecutors say Fox was entertaining friends Tuesday when he set off the device, sending shrapnel into his trailer that killed his 38-year-old girlfriend, Jeanette Ogara.
Along with murder, Fox was charged with exploding a destructive device and child endangerment, because the couple's sleeping 4-year-old daughter was in the trailer. She was not hurt.
Fox says he has no idea what he's going to tell the little girl.
He has pleaded not guilty.
