Both women tried to help Thompson escape after he shot Miktarian during a traffic stop for loud music. The Plain Dealer reported that Roberson was in the car at the time of the shooting and removed the gun from the car. Robinson is accused of trying to free Thompson from his handcuffs after he fled the scene of the July 13, 2008 shooting.
Thompson was convicted and sentenced to death for shooting Miktarian in the head four times during a routine traffic stop.
