The Lexington Man accused of killing a gas station clerk was back in court this morning.
18-year-old Travis Bredhold had his preliminary hearing earlier today.

On Thursday Morning ABC 36 heard from the investigating detective in the case who told the court how they came to arresting Bredhold.

According to detective Bill Brislin’s testimony Bredhold admitted to stealing a Nissan Altima a few days before the shooting while at a party.

It was a Nissan Altima that police believe the suspect got away in. Investigators said a car matching the description of the getaway vehicle was found with a camouflage jacket in the back near the incident a short time later.

The suspect in surveillance video was also wearing a camo-jacket. Police say Bredhold was seen at the party wearing a very similar coat.

The detective said some of the people at the party event took pictures of Bredhold because of how he was dressed and acting.

Brislin also confirmed the defendant’s foster parents identified him through the surveillance video.

Bredhold’s attorney focused on his clients past medical history and requested a mental health evaluation for his client.

The judge did decide there was enough probable cause in this case to send it to a grand jury. Bredhold was also denied bond.
