Doubt/suspect[edit]

This is as much to aid my learning as anything else: using English, if I were to say "I suspect you killed him", it indicates that I think you have committed murder, whereas if I say "I doubt you killed him", it indicates that I think you have not. In Finnish, both doubt and suspect translate as epäillä. If I say "epäilen, että murhasit hänet", does that mean I suspect you or doubt you? How does one differentiate between the two when speaking?
