Andre Lee back in Court

The Binghamton man charged with shooting and killing a city teenager was back in court Wednesday.

Andre Lee is charged with second degree murder in the death of 19 year old Scott Wright Jr. the teenager was shot at the town and country apartment complex on the Fourth of July in 2014. Lee pleaded not guilty later that August.

Today he was in court for a pre-trial hearing where investigators from the Binghamton Police Department testified. They say they searched the home of Lee's girlfriend on the morning after the shooting.

That's where they say they found Lee hiding in the attic. Judge Joseph Cawley said Lee's criminal record "showed a willingness to put his interests above the interests of society." Andre Lee's trial is set to begin on January 4th.
