"Words can't express my remorse and you know my sorrow for what happen that day.

And I'm just really sorry to the Wright family and my family and all the other people involved. "

     Gbbard faces 20 years to life if convicted of murder charges.

     Right now there is no plea deal on the table and deters says they will take this case to a jury.

  "I will tell you right now that when I stand in front of that jury we are going to ask for a conviction. But we are going to ask for a conviction of not murder."

     The former pastor, husband, and father of two says he will testify in his trial.

 "I'm talking to God everyday and asking him to forgive me and I'm praying for the strength of the Wright family and my family to get through this whole ordeal. "

"Sniffling..I don't know what else."

     A trial date hasn't been set.
