Brockport N.Y.-For the first time, we're hearing a recording of a 911 call by Clayton Whittemore -- the Utica man facing trial soon for the killing of a student at The College at Brockport.

The recordings  made in September 2012, when Whittemore called from a Thruway rest area to turn himself in.

He's heard telling a dispatcher he's done something he can't take back and wants to apologize to someone.

He also wants to know if he can ask for the death penalty.

 Whittemore is charged with second-degree murder in the beating death of Alexandra Kogut. The trial is set to start at the end of March
