Confession to cats doesn't hold up in court

David Henton, 72, who had been charged with murdering his partner after police recorded him apparently confessing to his cats was cleared yesterday by a jury that decided his comments were the ramblings of an old man. During a seven-week trial, the prosecution played hours of secret and largely inaudible recordings of Henton muttering to himself and the cats. Source: Times onLine
