Man agrees to testify against brother in killing
BETHLEHEM, Pa. - August 12, 2011 (WPVI) -- A man who previously refused to testify against his brother in a Pennsylvania murder case has changed his mind after prosecutors asked for him to be held in contempt of court.
The lawyer for Algee Macon says his client has agreed to testify against his brother, Daniel, in the fatal shooting of a teenager that police called a case of mistaken identity.
Authorities say Daniel Macon ordered another man to kill a rival drug dealer in 2006 in Bethlehem but the man went to the wrong apartment. Paul Serrano III has already pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 15-year-old Kevin Muzila.
Attorney Brian Lawser said during Thursday's contempt hearing in Northampton County court that Algee Macon agreed to testify at a preliminary hearing scheduled for next week.
