PITTSBURGH – The armored car guard accused in a $2 million heist in Pittsburgh has been ordered to stand trial on homicide and robbery charges after an FBI agent said the man admitted killing his partner and taking the money.
Twenty-two-year-old Kenneth Konias Jr. was bound over for trial Friday on charges stemming from the Feb. 28 robbery in which fellow Garda Cash Logistics guard Michael Haines was killed.
An FBI agent who testified at the preliminary hearing says the Dravosburg man led investigators to a storage unit where he kept some of the missing $2.3 million following his April 24 capture in Pompano Beach, Fla.
The agent testified Konias said he killed Haines in self-defense but prosecutors say the evidence doesn't support that claim.
At least $1.1 million has been recovered.
