Shocking new details were revealed in court Friday about a deadly fire in Webster last December.
A Webster teen is accused of setting his home on fire, killing his father and two brothers.
Michael Pilato is charged with murder, attempted murder and arson. He is accused of setting the fire in the middle of the night that killed his father Carmen, and brothers, Peter and Josh. His mother and sister survived.
At issue for the hearing, whether incriminating statement Pilato made to police after the fire can be used against him at his trial. On the witness stand Friday was Nathaniel Blood, who lives with Michael Pilato’s sister, Elaina.
Blood testified that they got a phone call from Michael to meet him in Ellison Park. There, according to Blood, Michael said he started the fire by putting a gas can in the stove because he was made at his father.
