BRIDGEPORT - The man accused of killing a construction worker in Bridgeport last week was in court yesterday.

The family of Jose Araujo wept openly when Gregory Weathers was arraigned.

Police say Weathers shot Araujo at a work site on Chopsey Hill Road last Thursday.

Weathers reportedly told police afterward that he was "settling a labor dispute" with Araujo.

Police say Weathers walked up to the site and asked for a job, then came back later and shot Araujo five times.

Weathers is being held on $1 million bond.
