SAN JOSE — Yosemite killer Cary Stayner told FBI agents that he would have struck again if he hadn’t been caught. .
Stayner’s tape-recorded confession was played Monday to the jury that could give him the death penalty in the killing of three park tourists.

On the tape, Stayner said he wanted tell someone that he had killed tourists Carole Sund, 42, her daughter, Juli, 15, and their friend Silvina Pelosso, 16, in February 1999 and then six months later beheaded park nature guide Joie Armstrong. But he kept quiet until the FBI interrogated him.
