Actor Involved In Shooting Death of a New York Police Officer Takes the Stand

Actor Lillo Brancato testified in his defense on December 15 for his part in the shooting death of a New York police officer, Daniel Enchautegui in December of 2005.

Daniel Enchautegui was off-duty and walking to his home in the Bronx when he witnessed Lillo Brancato and a co-defendant, Steven Armento breaking into Enchautegui's neighbor's apartment. According to statements from the prosecutors, the pair was trying to break in to the apartment to steal prescription drugs. Daniel Enchautegui surprised the two men in the act and Steven Armento shot Daniel Enchautegui a few feet from of his own home.

Steven Armento was convicted of first degree murder in October and is currently serving a life sentence for his part in the homicide.

Lillo Brancato testified that he is the victim of his drug addiction and that he does not remember confessing to the crime in the hospital after the shooting. It is up to the jury in case to decide Lillo Brancato's fate now.
