HAMBURG, N.Y. (WIVB) - Police say Bernard Grucza kept secret his role in the murder of a co-worker at Toys R Us in Hamburg for more than three months.
On Friday, the 38-year-old was in Hamburg Town Court handcuffed and shackled for a pre-trial hearing on second degree murder charges. Grucza is accused of killing Laurence Wells on the morning of June 29 at the McKinley Parkway store.
The judge told Grucza to make sure he has a defense lawyer. So far investigators have not released the motive for the murder.
A preliminary hearing is set for Tuesday unless Grucza is indicted before then.
