Pre-Robbery Directions

2:39pm. Louis Shkane of New Hartford begins to testify.

-Shkane testifies that he was with his wife and two children on the evening of February 27, 2006, before the robbery.

-Went to wash his vehicle at Precision Wash in Washington Mills. Then, he drove to the E-Z Mart gas station on Kellogg Road. He began to fuel his vehicle. Then, he noticed two vehicles pulling into the gas station at the same time.

-The first vehicle was a midnight blue Buick. Its driver said, "Excuse me, can you give me directions to Commercial Drive?" Shkane: "Where are you going?" Driver ignored the question. Shkane: "That's okay, that's none of my business. This is what you do." Shkane then directed the man back to Route 8.

-Shkane testifies that he noticed the arm of a passenger in the first car and at least two other people in the trailing vehicle. After he gave directions to the driver of the first vehicle, that man thanked him and departed the station. The second car followed.

UPDATE:

-3:00pm. Shkane testifies that Routes 8/840 are close to Lomond Place in Utica. Earlier, we learned one of the cell phone towers contacted by John Healy's phone was located at Lomond Place.

-Shkane identifies a picture of the man to whom he gave directions. It is Walter Richardson. He then identifies a picture of the crashed Buick as the one Richardson was driving.

-Shkane cannot testify as to whether Healy was in one of the two cars he observed.
-On February 28, he contacted the police upon learning about the robbery/homicide.

Shkane is off the stand at 3:22pm. Back after a ten minute break. As always...post your thoughts by clicking on "comments."

Andy, you are doing a great job keeping us informed as to what is happening in the court. You kind of wonder how much more proof they need that Healy was at the crime. To bad his partner got killed, would of liked to see him spend the rest of his life in jail. Keep up with the good job.
