He might have made a clean getaway,prosecutorsallege, if it werent for an unrelated incident Marin County authorities were investigating. They followed Wade to a storage facility, because they suspected his involvement in a drive-by shooting, and found the missing vehicle. For the drive-by, Wade was charged with attempted murder. Max Wade already had the flashy yellow Lamborghini, but he wanted to have the beautiful blonde to go with it, and he was willing to kill to get it, Deputy District Attorney Yvette Martinez told jurors during opening statements in a San Rafael courtroom Friday. Aside from the car theft charges, the DA says that Wade, scorned by the object of his affection, 18-year-old Eva Dedier, tried to kill her and her boyfriend, Landon Wahlstrom, 19, while they sat in Wahlstroms truck outside his home. Theyre [Dedier and Wahlstrom] cooperating with the legal process, said Lt. Jamie Scardina, with the Marin County Sheriffs Department. Landon has already testified, hes done, but always subject to a call-back. The love triangle was thrown out, the judge didnt believe there was a love triangle, said Wades mother, Leylla Wade. First she said he stole a Lamborghini a year ago to seduce the girl, which is bulls***, even the judge doesnt believe it. In opening arguments, defense lawyer Charles Dresow said he had evidence to prove Wade did not shoot at the victims. The Lamborghini theft and the shooting occurred. There is no doubt about that, Dresow said. They were victims. The evidence will show that they were not victims of my client. If convicted on all charges, Wade could serve a maximum prison term of up to 30 years. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges. On the way back into the courtroom, Dresow told ABC News, We are going to do whatever we have to do to get the right result. According to Scardina, Marin detectives searching Wades storage shed found Fieris missing car, the gun allegedly used in the shooting, climbing gear, two assault rifles and shotgun shells, a San Francisco Police Department uniform and badge and false identification cards from California, Florida and New York.
