Law enforcement personnel reported that although a Milltown man confessed he called 911 after a woman died, he insists he did not cause the injury that killed her. However, he will probably be charged in her death. No information has been released on an attorney or on a criminal defense strategy in the case.
The couple shared an apartment together where she was found dead. Authorities conducted an autopsy and continue to investigate the alleged crime. A preliminary exam suggests she died from blunt-force trauma to her head.
According to the suspect, he went to his mother's home shortly after the victim's suspected time of death. He dialed 911 to report her injuries. Although he did not give his name to the emergency operator, he later confessed that he was the caller. The suspect was out on bail in an unrelated case. He was taken into custody after tests showed that he had been consuming alcohol, which was a violation of his bail terms.
A criminal defense attorney can help someone who faces serious legal charges. The suspect was out on bail at the time he allegedly committed the crime, which means he should have been following his terms of release. His confirmed consumption of alcohol may have contributed to the alleged offense. A lawyer will investigate the client's background, discuss the client's version of events surrounding the present offense and review the case. Attorneys may be able to negotiate with prosecutors and law enforcement officials in order to reduce or even dismiss charges.
