FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- The lawyer for a man accused of fatally shooting a Frederick ice cream truck driver as children stood in line says there's more to the story than prosecutors allege.
Carl Somerlock represented 27-year-old Larnell Lyles at a bail review hearing Monday in Frederick. Lyles was ordered held without bail on a first-degree murder charge in the slaying Saturday of 22-year-old Brandon Brown.
A man who was helping Brown sell ice cream at a subsidized housing complex told police Lyles fired without provocation after Brown stepped outside the van to smoke.
Somerlock says that's "pretty unbelievable." He says Brown was not a professional ice cream man but was engaged in some other occupation. He declined to elaborate.
