After taking the boy away from under my very eyes to kill him - the loving, innocent, harmless lad. My own, I tell you. He was lying on the couch quite easy - after killing the boy - my boy. I would have gone on the streets to get out of his sight. And he says to me like this: `Come here,' after telling me I had helped to kill the boy. You hear, Tom?
