LEE COUNTY, Fla. - "I don't agree with any of this. He should be home with us and his family," said Danielle Downer.
Leandro Fermin's girlfriend begged a judge to grant her boyfriend bond. He's accused of leaving the back door open at his job at McDonald's to let Gilberto Amoaya and Kamyn Bright rob the place.
"As far as the robbery, how could he know something like that would happen? How could he set that up?
Amaya and Bright fled the scene, one on foot, the other in a car leading police on a high speed chase, running over a K-9 officer along the way.
Bright was shot and killed after he killed a K-9 officer. Amaya and his accomplice are now charged with murder.
"I have serious questions as to whether Mr. Fermin had the knowledge of what was going to happen in order to charge him with murder at this point," said Fermin's lawyer, Rene Suarez.
Suarez tells WINK his client is innocent, and had no idea the men were planning a violent robbery.
"I would ask the public to be patient. The facts and what really happened will come out in the coming months," he said.
Fermin's family asked the judge for mercy. In the end, both men are held without bond.
