MILFORD \u2014 An Edgefield Avenue man accused of pistol-whipping and shooting a roommate to death told police the killing was accidental, according to a police report. \u201cI know I didn\u2019t mean to, I know it doesn\u2019t make a difference. It doesn\u2019t change anything,\u201d the suspect, 29-year-old Matthew Miner, allegedly said to detectives after being told the roommate, Justin Spray, 35, was dead. \u201cI never intended to do that to him.\u201d Miner was charged with murder, criminal possession of a firearm, carrying a pistol without a permit and altering or removing the identifying marks on a firearm. During his arraignment Thursday in Superior Court, Judge Maureen Dennis ordered Miner held on $1 million bond and continued the case to June 7. Assistant State\u2019s Attorney Matthew Kalthoff said there is surveillance video footage that captured the homicide. \u201cThe state would certainly argue it has a strong case,\u201d the prosecutor said. A bail commissioner said Miner has several pending cases out of Derby Superior Court, including several probation violation charges, as well as several convictions for charges including assault and drunk driving. Deputy Assistant Public Defender Kevin Semataska, who represented Miner at the arraignment, asked the judge to set bond at $750,000, saying his client had \u201cvery limited means of support\u201d and receives income mostly from side jobs. However, the judge denied his request. Police said both men reside at multi-unit boarding house at 83 Edgefield Ave. Authorities were called to the home just before 1 p.m. Wednesday afternoon following a report of a \u201cfight between two individuals and possible gunfire.\u201d According to the police report, when cops arrived they found Miner attempting to perform CPR on Spray before he was identified as a suspect and detained. Spray was rushed to Yale New Haven Hospital but was pronounced dead at 1:47 p.m. A witness who lives at the house told police Miner and Spray were \u201crough-housing\u201d outside the home about 20 minutes before the shooting. The witness said Miner was \u201cvery intoxicated.\u201d About 10 to 15 minutes later, Miner told Spray that he had lost his wallet when Spray had tackled him earlier and cursed at him, according to the witness\u2019 account. When Spray threw down some tools he was holding, Miner pulled out a handgun and pistol-whipped Spray. The witness told police that Miner\u2019s finger was on the trigger of the gun as he pistol-whipped Spray, \u201cand then the gun went off.\u201d The witness told officers he didn\u2019t believe Miner pulled the trigger on purpose. The police report says surveillance video from the home was consistent with the witness\u2019 account. The witness also told police he suspected Miner could be making \u201cghost guns\u201d because he saw a handgun barrel in Miner\u2019s room and signed for packages from an Ohio-based gun parts manufacturer. The police report says that the handgun seized after the shooting did not have a serial number or make or model.
