FARGO, N.D. (AP) — The father of two children slain on the Spirit Lake Reservation says he felt pressured by FBI agents to confess to killing them.

Travis DuBois Sr. isn't charged with murdering 9-year-old Destiny Shaw-DuBois and her 6-year-old brother, Travis DuBois Jr., in May 2011. But attorneys for suspect Valentino Bagola say the elder DuBois -- not Bagola -- was responsible for the deaths and confessed.

The Forum reports the elder Dubois testified Monday during Bagola's murder trial, disavowing his alleged confession. He says he didn't kill or hurt the children.

Authorities allege Bagola stabbed the two children to death after sexually assaulting the girl, and that he confessed. They allege Bagola was angry with the children's father but couldn't find him and instead took out his rage on the children.
