SANFORD, Fla. -- Michael Morin faces the possibility of the death penalty in the death of his girlfriend's father.
Morin said his teenage girlfriend, Courtney Schulhoff, hated her father--because he was allegedly abusive to her -- so much that she plotted his death with her boyfriend Morin as the guy who would swing the softball bat as her father lay sleeping.
"She told me, I left a baseball bat out for you. And I was like, what's the baseball bat for? She's like, Well, just hit him,'" Morin said.
Morin told police he took the bat, walked into the apartment and the next thing he knows the bat has blood on it and he's washing his face.
"And she just asked me, 'Did you do it?' And she had a big smile on her face and I just wanted to puke," Morin said.
"All I could do is just sit there and regret what I had just done. Eating me up inside. I sat there and cried my eyes out, thinking what had just taken place," Morin said.
The defense said Morin’s testimony was all a cover for Schulhoff, that she did the deed.
She's expected to testify for the defense.
