DENVER (AP) -A federal court document says an inmate told authorities that on the night Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams was killed, another inmate had traded trucks with a man considered a person of interest in the death.
It is unclear from the document whether that vehicle was the one that carried Williams' killers when the fatal shots were fired.
Williams was shot and killed while riding in a rented limousine early Jan. 1, 2007, after leaving a Denver nightclub. Witnesses said men flashed gang signs and confronted Williams and his group after taking offense when Broncos player Brandon Marshall sprayed them with champagne.
Police have said the shots were fired from a white sport-utility vehicle that police said was registered to Brian Hicks, an accused gang leader who was behind bars at the time.
Investigators have accused Willie Clark of working for Hicks in an alleged drug operation and say Clark is a person of interest in Williams' death.
In a declaration filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court, Hicks' former girlfriend, Veronica Garcia, wrote about meeting inmate Tamika Knight in Jefferson County jail and said Knight had spoken to a government attorney.
``She told me that she had told the Government that Willie Clark and I traded trucks on the night the Bronco player was killed,'' Garcia wrote in a declaration in her own drug case.
Clark has denied involvement in Williams' death and has denied any drug violations. No charges in the slaying have been filed.
