Antonio Brown pleads not guilty to murder charges


Murder suspect Antonio Brown pleaded not guilty last week to the three charges against him stemming from the alleged murder of Charles Welch last September.

Brown, 27, was indicted and charged with premeditated first-degree murder, possession of an unlawful firearm and another possession of a firearm during a crime charge because of his prior conviction.
Brown has been held without bail while his case went to a grand jury, which indicted him on June 22, court documents show.
Brown is one of two people charged with Welch’s fatal shooting last September. His co-defendant Amanda Turner has been out while she awaits a trial for her charge of first-degree murder while armed. Both suspects are due back in court on Aug. 5 at 9:30 a.m.
