Daniel Fortune’s attorney has admitted to a judge that his client was at William Guerette’s home the night of a brutal attack on the Pittston family with a machete.
The 21-year-old Augusta man was in court this week, asking that his bail be reduced from $1,000,000 to $50,000.
Fortune and his foster brother, Leo Hylton are accused of breaking into the home of William Guerrette Junior.
Guerrette and his 10-year-old daughter were bludgeoned and hacked with a machete, suffering critical injuries.
In court, Fortune’s attorney said it was actually Hylton who used the machete.
Nonetheless, a judge refused to reduce Fortune’s bail.
