A video showing a man confessing to drowning two of his sons in a creek has been played in his capital murder trial in Dallas.
Testimony continues Wednesday in the trial of Naim Rasool Muhammad. Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Muhammad over the 2011 deaths of the boys - 5-year-old Naim and 3-year-old Elijah.
Muhammad in the video tells police he was mad at the children's mother for breaking up with him. Muhammad describes telling his sons to pretend they are swimming before he held their faces in the water.
Investigators say Muhammad forced his ex-girlfriend and two of their sons into his car. She escaped and asked a constable for help. The constable called police. Constables are mainly process servers.
The couple's youngest son was with relatives.
