When in court he again denied everything until the incriminating evidence was brought forward. Charles' boss confirmed he had worked on Julia's car and that he was not at work on the day of the murder. The striation markings on the bullet extracted from Julia and a reference bullet from Charles' gun were identical proving she was shot with his gun. The hairs found in his Vehicle belonged to Julia. The shoe and tire prints at both scenes were consistent with his shoe and car tire treads. Charles' was astonished at the volume of evidence against him. He then made his confession. He thought she was single and gorgeous. When he tried to talk to her at the garage she didn't give him the time of day. So he loosened her tire cap so the air would gradually leak until eventually giving her a flat then he could come along and save her.
