**Updated** 'I'm not a monster,' Garnier tells officer during interrogation after arrest

**Updated at 1:10 p.m.**

Christopher Garnier told a police interrogator he had fuzzy memories of the night Catherine Campbell died, but said he remembers hearing her final breaths.

The jury is continuing to watch the 9.5-hour-long taped interview Wednesday at Garnier's murder trial in Nova Scotia Supreme Court.

Garnier told RCPP Corporal Jody Allison on September 16th, 2015, that he recalled seeing Campbell bleeding from her nose area inside an apartment on McCully Street.

He told Allison that Campbell wasn't alive when she went into the compost bin because, quote -- "I could hear her take her last breaths."

Garnier sobbed as he told the interrogator that he was sorry for what happened.

Garnier allegedly killed the off-duty police officer in a McCully Street apartment and used a wheeled compost bin to dispose of her body.

The 30-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and interfering with a dead body.
