COLUMBIA — Joshua Murray, one of two men accused in the shooting death of Tre'Veon Marshall, entered a not guilty plea Monday at the Boone County Courthouse.
Murray, 18, and Nicholas Thomas, 19, have been charged with first-degree murder and armed criminal action.
Marshall was shot on July 14 in McKee Park and died early the next day, according to previous Missourian reporting. Marshall was in the class of 2014 at Hickman High School and would have turned 18 on July 31.
Another defendant, 17-year-old Kimberly Huett-Linzie has been charged with hindering prosecution in connection with the case. Huett-Linzie drove Murray and Thomas to McKee Park on the night of the shooting and later told another witness not to tell anyone about it, according to a probable cause statement from Boone County Prosecutor Dan Knight.
The three defendants were arrested Aug. 14.
