You arrest a suspect, Ben Linus, for the shooting of John Locke

This answer was rated:

You arrest a suspect, Ben Linus, for the shooting of John Locke and properly advise him of his Miranda rights in full compliance with your department's arrest procedure. Although, when asked to sign a form to show that he understands his rights, he refuses. At no point does Ben say that he wants to remain silent, that he does not want to talk to the police, or that he wants an attorney present. Throughout questioning, Ben remains silent and does not respond to any questions, until you ask him "Did you pray to God for forgiveness after you shot John?" To which he responds with one word: "yes." Ben does not answer any other questions.

At trial, the Prosecution introduces into evidence Ben's one word response as an inculpatory statement.

In your opinion, should the Defense Attorney object? Why or why not? How should the Court rule? Why?
