Brenton Charlton Murder Trial - May 22, 2009

Marlon Wilson who refused to testify last week in the Brenton Charlton murder trial went on the stand yesterday and stated he lied about everything during the preliminary. The 29-year-old was having no part of it, saying he would be branded a snitch and wanted to come out of the federal penitentiary alive after serving out his sentence on a weapons charge.

He went on to say "I don't want to sit on this stand and lie on those guys," Wilson said, referring to the three defendants whom he has known close to or all of his life – Tyshan Riley, 26, Philip Atkins, 25 and Jason Wisdom, 23 (pictured).

The day just started out with denials, “I don’t knows” and “I wasn’t telling the truth”. Past transcripts were brought up and it was obvious to everyone, he was lying. “Everything I said at the preliminary hearing was lying," he said at one point, adding a minute later: "That is what I said but that wasn't the truth." He originally stated he was at the gathering at the house they chill at but then recanted and said he was originally at home.

Damn, this case is going all over the place, these boys really might get off.
