Man held in Md. trooper slaying
A man charged with fatally shooting an off-duty Maryland State trooper outside a restaurant in Forestville in June was ordered held without bond Wednesday by a Prince George’s County judge following a preliminary hearing.
There were no substantial revelations during the hearing for Cyril Cornelius Williams, 27, of Seat Pleasant. County homicide Detective Kenneth Doyle testified that Williams’s co-defendant, Anthony A. Milton II, 28, told investigators that Williams fatally shot Trooper Wesley Brown.
Brown, 24, was shot June 11 outside an Applebee’s, where he was moonlighting as a security officer. The handgun that police allege was used in the killing was found in Milton’s backyard, Doyle testified.
Under cross-examination by John J. McKenna, Williams’s lawyer, Doyle said some of Milton’s statements to police were not true. Doyle did not detail what Milton lied about. District Court Judge Robert W. Heffron Jr. ordered Williams, who has been detained on a parole violation, held without bond on the murder charge. Milton also is charged with murder in Brown’s slaying.
