5:36 pm
put something in his peanut butter. brile took a text from katherine, the roommate, as a code that she was on his side and that he needed to take care of grace. when grace came home, ryan said brile asked why she was trying to kill him. there was a confrontation and breel strangled her. he then texted katherine. there's a mess in holly's room. went to look for a phone charger, made a mess. >> the prosecution's final piece of evidence may turn out to be its most important. it was a 15-minute jailhouse phone call between steven brile and his parents. it was just two weeks after he killed grace man. and in this phone conversation, he sounds completely normal. he is completely coherent, as he and his parents chat about relatives bbooks, about magazines and that's the whole point. prosecution is trying to
