Niagara Gazette — Fatico said Davis sent a message back to Bradberry saying she would meet him and bring along a friend (Wilson). Wilson had met Fatico because she was dating her cousin and they had become friends who would “go out together sometimes.”
“I was going to Mr. Bradberry’s (apartment) to see what he had there,” Fatico testified. “(Whether he had) anything valuable, such as drugs or money.”
“For what purpose?” First Assistant District Attorney Doreen Hoffmann asked.
“To take it,” Fatico replied.
Hoffmann asked whose idea it was to rob Bradberry and Fatico said, “Matthew’s.”
Fatico said Davis then drove her and Wilson to Bradberrys’ apartment, dropping them off a block away so they could walk up without his van being seen. Bradberry met the two women outside and then brought them into the apartment building through a locked security door.
Once they were in the apartment, Fatico said she and Wilson were “smoking marijuana and drinking” with Bradberry. She also said she was texting with Davis on her cell phone.
“I texted (Davis) that I didn’t really see anything (valuable) and that we were chillin’,” Fatico said. “(Davis texted), ‘That’s not what you went up there to do.’”
Fatico said she left the apartment and went out to see Davis, then she went back inside. A short time later, she and Wilson told Bradberry they had to leave.
As the two women went to the apartment building lobby, Fatico saw Davis waiting by the door and Wilson spotted a surveillance camera pointing at the door.
The trio then drove to a gas station off of 19th Street.
“Me and Chasity told (Davis) we had seen some marijuana, but it wasn’t much,” Fatico said. “Maybe a couple of jars and that there might be some more drugs in the apartment, but maybe not.”
