A former policeman is on trial in Kansas, accused of killing his wife and setting their home on fire more than two years ago.
Attorneys for Brett Seacat say his wife, Vashti, started the fire and shot herself.
But prosecutors say he was upset about the dissolution of their marriage, giving him more than enough motive.
On Monday, jurors heard from the Seacats' marriage counselor,CNN affiliate KWCH reported.
Connie Suderman testified that Seacat called her just hours after his wife's death in April 2011.
"He said, 'I killed her, Vashti is dead and it's my fault.' That's what he said," Suderman said, according to KWCH.
The counselor also testified that she met with Vashti Seacat shortly before her death.
