purported member of the Parkway gang is on trial for first- and third-degree murder

08:41 |

defense theory that Nigel Ali Maitland was firing in self-defense when he allegedly shot and killed 9-year-old Ciara Savage on Mother's Day 2009 was dealt a blow Wednesday morning when a letter from Maitland was read aloud in court.
Writing from prison to his cousin, an alleged member of the Parkway gang, Maitland wrote that he was in a "fall-back" position, apparently regarding members of the south-side gang, "but them b-- n--s went too far."
Mentioning an altercation, he wrote, "That was the last straw. ... I just wish that little girl wasn't hurt by a stray."
Maitland also wrote, "Win, lose or draw, I'm gonna rumble." The letter was read aloud in court by York City Detective Tony Fetrow, who testified a handwriting expert determined Maitland was the writer.
In a second letter to a friend, Maitland wrote that, "I got myself into all this nut s-- by going out and fighting."
The purported member of the Parkway gang is on trial for first- and third-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and illegal gun possession.
Closing arguments are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. Thursday.
