Accident Hearing, Chief Allegations Continue
An Asheville police officer who claims the Chief tried to cover up his son's accident must turn over an audio recording he has of William Anderson.
A Superior Court Judge made the ruling at a hearing a few hours ago.
The tape is from a few days after Chad Anderson's wreck, and according to Lt. Bill Wilke's attorney the tape was given to Wilke by another officer.
Chad Anderson's attorney Sean Devereaux filed a motion last month to see all of Lt. Wilke's statements, notes and evidence pertaining to the crash investigation.
He even asked to question him under oath after lt. Wilke publicly accused chief anderson of trying to coerse him into lying to investigators about his son's crash.
At a hearing this morning the state informed the judge that Lt. Wilke may be withholding information about the case.
The judge granted the motion.
Wilke did not take the stand but he must turn over an audio recording of the chief just days after his son's accident.
Sean Devereux says this new information could help his case.
News 13 spoke with Lt. Wilke's attorney after the hearing, he says they've given the state everything Wilke knows about the case and will continue to do so.
He goes on to say the tape he had, has nothing to do with the crash investigation, it has everything to do with the Chief's actions after the wreck.
A copy of the recording will be turning over to Deveruex today.
