CHICAGO — Prosecutors played a video confession from one of the two men charged with killing Hadiya Pendleton.

Retired Chicago police detective John Halloran, who questioned Micheail Ward soon after his arrest in 2013, took the stand.

On the footage, Halloran and his partner demanded explanations from Ward about his actions on the day Pendleton was shot and killed.

The interrogation with on and off questioning lasted about twenty hours.

The defense has insisted all along that Ward gave a false confession due to police coercion with the department under pressure to solve Pendleton’s murder.

Prosecutors have already rested their case against accused getaway driver Kenneth Williams.

There are separate juries for this trial due to competing defenses.
