On trial for molesting and slaying a 6-year-old Christopher Michael Barrios Jr., that is what David Edenfield told authorities in a taped interview.
On the tape, Edenfield says he and his wife watched their son, 34-year-old George Edenfield, strip the boy and force him to have sex on a bed in their mobile home while the child pleaded for them to stop.
“It’s my fault. I should’ve been a grown man and stopped it right then, but I didn’t,” the elder Edenfield tells detective Raymond Sarro on the tape. “I should be punished for the crime.”
Edenfield said he pulled his pants down and rubbed himself against the boy, but denied having sex with him. He said his son started choking Christopher after the boy cried out “I’m going tell my daddy and grandma!”
Instead of stopping his son from killing the boy, Edenfield says he placed his own hands on top of his son’s while they were around Christopher’s neck.
“I put my hands on his hands, but I did not squeeze,” Edenfield says on the recording. “I just wanted to see what it would feel like, I guess.”
“What what felt like?” Sarro asked.
Edenfield replied: “To choke somebody.”
