Indictment in Md. trooper's killing

Ruben Castaneda

A Prince George's County grand jury Thursday indicted a Seat Pleasant man on charges that he participated in last month's murder of an off-duty Maryland state trooper outside a Forestville restaurant.

The grand jury indicted Anthony A. Milton, 28, on charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, and three handgun violations, State's Attorney Glenn F. Ivey announced. Milton is charged in connection with the June 11 murder of Trooper Wesley Brown, 24.

Brown was fatally shot outside an Applebee's restaurant where he was moonlighting as a security guard.

Police and prosecutors allege that Milton supplied the handgun used to kill Brown to Cyril C. Willams, also 28.

Authorities allege that Brown ejected Williams from the restaurant for urinating inside and possibly for disputing his bill.

Williams was so enraged that he returned about 30 minutes later and opened fire on Brown, who was outside talking on his cellphone, according to authorities.

Williams, who has a long history of convictions for drug possession, was on parole at the time of the killing. No court date has been scheduled for Williams in connection with the murder of Brown.

In June, a District Court judge ordered Milton held without bond .

Now that Milton has been indiicted, authorities said, he will likely get another bond hearing in the days to come.

If this guy hasn't earned the death penalty then no one will...

And if it's jury trial in PG County, he will be acquitted.

"Law enforcement sources say the gunman fired seven times, hitting Brown with all seven rounds from a distance of about 70 feet."

I am shocked he hit him with all 7 rounds from 70 feet away.

Unless he was using a long-gun, I this is a tough one to believe.

If true, it only reinforces the fact that it was cold-blooded and calculated. Another reason MD needs the death penalty for cases like this.

Thats because he is entiteled to a jury of his peers. . people such as himself.

Everyone in his social-economic circle, are under 30, have no job, have a criminal history, hate the police & carry guys, so you are correct checkered1.

If this idiot gets acquitted by a jury of his peers then there can NEVER be another claim of racism by a PG County resident ever.
They would essentially be advocating the murder of law enforcement if this guy walks.
How absurd is this murder anyway...he got bounced from an Applebees for God's sake. Leaves then returns with a gun to ambush the guy.
Can someone possibly explain that one?

He should have been killed on the sight by anyone observing this hit. Killing a killer should be legal in addition to killing illegal aliens.
