HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. – There aren't many people accused of breaking INTO jail.
But that's what police say the brother of a Long Island murder suspect did when he refused to listen to jail guards who told him there were no visiting hours for prisoners on Monday.
Thomas Walsh was arrested on trespassing and other charges and pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Tuesday. He was ordered held on $6,000 bail. His lawyer said his client was going through a lot of emotional turmoil.
Last week, Walsh's brother, William, was arrested on murder charges after police said he killed his wife during a fight and then concocted an elaborate ruse to make it appear as if she were the victim of random roadside violence.
William Walsh is being held without bail. He's due back in court Wednesday.
