Brancato Jr Seeks Separate Trial

THE SOPRANOS actor LILLO BRANCATO JR yesterday (04MAY06) requested a separate trial because he intends to call his co-defendant as a witness. Brancato, who made his name in ROBERT DE NIRO's directorial debut A BRONX TALE aged 16, faces murder charges after an off-duty policeman was shot dead during a bungled burglary in New York City on 10 December (05). Brancato was shot twice by DANIEL ENCHAUTEGUI during their fatal encounter. Brancato's lawyer MEL SACHS told the New York court co-accused STEVEN ARMENTO could testify that his client did not know his accomplice was carrying a firearm, the Associated Press reports. However, Armento, 48, indicated he would not testify on Brancato's behalf by shaking his head when Sachs proposed the motion to Justice STEVEN BARRETT. Barrett delayed his ruling until the next hearing, scheduled for 11 July (06).
