UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP)- A judge has ordered one of the suspects charged in the slaying of a Maryland state trooper be held without bond.
Anthony Milton appeared via video for his hearing in Prince George's County District Court Tuesday. He faces first-degree murder charges in the killing of Trooper Wesley Brown, who was shot outside of a Forestville restaurant on Friday.
Judge Jean S. Baron told Milton that the charge carries the death penalty. She said due to the egregious nature of the charges and appalling statement of facts, he should continue to be detained without bond.
Milton stood in an orange jumpsuit, with his hands held behind him, and replied "yes ma'am" when asked to confirm his identity.
Charging documents say Milton admitted that he and Cyril Cornelius Williams carried out the shooting.
