He confided to /in me about the crime.
Which word should I use? Can you explain why, please?
Americans are strongly inclined to say "to confide in sb."
And I agree with bhaisahab, it sounds slightly unnatural to me, I think because of the word "about." I feel more likely to use a noun afterwards, as in:
"He confided in me the details of the crime."
"He confided in me the truth about what happened that night."
"He confided in me what had happened." etc.
