LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Now we can hear audio recordings from an accused killer in jail as he apparently plots to save his son from being convicted of murder.
"I'm meant to do something (expletive) huge, man," Gouker is heard saying. "And I need to know that you're not full of (expletive).
Joshua Gouker and his 16-year-old son Joshua Young are charged with the murder of Gouker's stepson, 14-year-old Trey Zwicker.
Newly released court documents detail several conversations Gouker had with his mother both inside the Floyd County Jail and over the phone. He says he did not kill Zwicker, but that he would "make it right."
The conversation continued:
Gouker: So look, man. Bottom line is I'm just going to take this one on the chin and God (expletive) it, Josh better not leave me. He better not leave me.
Mother: (unintelligible) So I can see everything that we see.
Gouker: Listen, Josh knows."
Mother: I know, I know he's not stay puttin'.
Gouker: No, Josh knows what's up.
Mother: I know.
Gouker: And he know's I'm pissed off for real.
Young has pleaded not guilty to Zwicker's murder. Gouker is being held on other charges in Floyd County and has not yet been arraigned.
In court, Young's lawyer said it was a possibility that Gouker would plead guilty to murder.
