Man's confession counts as evidence in murder trial

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A judge has decided that a confession made by a man charged with the fatal shooting of an Isle of Hope firefighter can be used as evidence in the trial.

The judge made the decision at a pretrial hearing on Monday for Brandon Mackey, who is charged with fatally shooting Wesley Franklin, in June 2012, in Sandfly.

Detectives say Mackey was trying to rob two women outside of Deb's Pub and Grub, and when the bar door opened, Mackey pulled the trigger, and the bullet hit Franklin.
