Newly released court documents suggest the alleged accomplice in the robbery and killing of a store clerk in Meriden last month knew more about the crime than he originally told police.
Surveillance video obtained by police appears to paint a different story than the one told to police by Willie Breyette.
Frankie Resto is the person charged with murder, but the role of Breyette was less clear, until now.
It's been an investigation where video has played a major role.
Surveillance video captured Resto, 36, shooting the 70-year-old Meriden convenience store owner Ibrahim Gazal in cold blood, and now video from a business near the store apparently shows Breyette may have been in on it.
Court papers just released said even though Breyette contends Resto walked to his waiting car and told him he just shot the clerk, video shows Breyette's "vehicle brake lights illuminate as the suspect is running and still 30 feet from the vehicle. This would lead one to believe that Breyette was waiting for Resto to flee the scene quickly."
Breyette's father had recently told Eyewitness news that his son had no idea what was up.
Court papers also said a number of people told investigators Resto would rob people with accomplices, including someone identified was Wilto, and a family member identified Breyette as Wilto.
Documents go on to say that Breyette denied speaking with Resto after the shooting, but phone records show Resto called Breyette's phone on June 27 at 9:30 p.m., about 24 hours after the killing.
Police cited several other inconsistencies in Breyette's statements to them, one of the reasons perhaps he is being held on $500,000 bond for his role as an accomplice.
