The confession from a suspect in the 2009 double murder inside the Piazza will not be suppressed, a judge ruled today.
Antonio Wright will go to trial for the killings, which left Rian Thal and Timothy Gilmore dead inside the Northern Liberties apartment building after a botched drug robbery. The Associated Press reports Wright argued he wasn’t read his rights and that he isn’t the man seen on surveillance footage firing shots into a unit in the building.
Judge Jeffrey Minehart denied the motion to suppress Wright’s confession.
Several of the original eight suspects have already pleaded guilty, and jury selections could begin today.
