“He (Newell) said he was the victim,” Dever said. “He said he was getting ready to kill the lawyer.”
“I told him I didn’t need to know all that,” Dever said, adding a state trooper was also in the ambulance when Newell made those remarks.
According to court papers, a trooper reported he heard Newell state, “I wish I killed more of them,” while being led from the scene.
Prosecutors added additional charges before the hearing began, bringing the total crimes charged to three counts of homicide, six attempted homicide, two aggravated assault and reckless endangerment.
Christine said a judge from Montgomery County has been selected to preside over the trial. A date has not been scheduled.
Newell is being held without bail at the Monroe County Correctional Facility.
