Judge says confession admissible in court

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A judge says 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 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 Deb's Pub and Grub and when the bar door opened, Mackey pulled the trigger and hit Franklin.
