Moran told officers the more noise Casey made, the more he beat him.

The affidavit says Moran also said, "I beat his a** and I'd do it again."  He also told police he is "f***ed up in the head and wants to kill again."

Moran told police half of him feels remorse but "the other half doesn't give a f***, I mean I just beat the sh** out of my friend."

It is not immediately clear what Moran meant by kill "again."

Moran is now in the Pinellas County jail charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing great bodily harm.
