Confessed killer Jonathan Hearn says he became “paranoid” as investigators tapped his phone calls with ex-lover Sabrina Limon in the days before he was arrested.

Hearn believed undercover cops were tracking him after Robert Limon’s murder in 2014 and mistakenly thought using Skype or a burner phone would give them the slip. He claims he and Limon stuck to talking about their affair and not the murder to throw off detectives.

Hearn has admitted shooting Robert Limon at his Tehachapi jobsite and is testifying against Sabrina Limon in a plea deal that reduced his murder charge to voluntary manslaughter.
