GALVESTON, Texas — After surrendering to Philadelphia police, a man accused of killing his infant son confessed to the first officer he saw, testimony revealed Tuesday.
In pretrial hearings that began Tuesday, attorneys for Travis Mullis, 24, seek to suppress their client’s statements ahead of a jury trial scheduled March 7. Mullis is charged with capital murder.
While at police headquarters, Mullis was calm and spoke in a low tone, Munroe said. After police confirmed Mullis was a wanted man, Munroe walked him into the secured lobby.
“‘I stomped his head, and I kept stomping his head,’” Munroe testified.
