A man has been indicted on federal charges of killing a Broward County sheriff's deputy from West Seneca, N.Y., during a search for child pornography at the suspect's home.
A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted Kenneth Wilk on first-degree murder charges in the shooting death of Deputy Todd Fatta, 33, during the Aug. 19 raid.
Investigators said when officers broke down the front door, Wilk fired a rifle shot at Fatta that penetrated his protective vest and kept firing at Sgt. Angelo Cedeno through a wall while the sergeant took cover. Cedeno was wounded in the shoulder and lost a finger.
Wilk, 43, had told his gay partner Kelly Ray Jones that he had weapons around their house, the indictment said. Jones had already been arrested on child pornography charges and was in jail at the time of the raid.
