Accused Toys R Us killer wants statements tossed

HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) – The accused Toys R Us killer wants to prevent prosecutors from using statements he made to police.

Bernard Grucza appeared in State Supreme Court on Wednesday. He’s accused of murdering the assistant manager of Toys R Us in Hamburg last summer.

His attorney says Grucza made statements to police that should not be used at trial because a lawyer wasn’t present.

Justice Penny Wolfgang wants the defendant to deal with federal gun charges in a separate case before she makes a ruling.
