Judge Rules Informants Must Wait For Reward In Cold Case Prosecution
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) _ A $50,000 reward for helping send a New London man to prison for murder is out of reach for two people who testified for the prosecution.
The Day of New London reports that Toni Wilson, the longtime companion of convicted killer Dickie Anderson Jr., and Arthur Moore, a jailhouse informant, testified when Anderson was tried in March for the 1990s murders of Renee Pellegrino and Michelle Comeau.
Anderson was convicted of Pellegrino’s murder and sentenced to 60 years.
A judge has ruled that Moore and Wilson must wait until Anderson’s conviction is upheld on appeal, which could take months or years, before they can petition the court.
The state attorney general also says Moore owes $48,000 in unpaid child support and asked that part of a reward be used to pay the debt.
