Indictment in Md. trooper's killing
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.
