NICHOLASVILLE — A judge entered not guilty pleas Friday on behalf of two Nicholasville men indicted on charges related to the 2008 slaying of Mark Dunn, 45.
During a video arraignment, Jessamine Circuit Judge Hunter Daugherty entered the pleas on behalf of David W. Peel, 34, and Odis D. Henson, 46. Neither man had an attorney, but public defenders are to be appointed for them.
Peel is charged with murder and first-degree robbery. Peel and Henson are both charged with second-degree arson and tampering with evidence in Dunn's killing.
Dunn was found May 6, 2008, in his charred pickup truck on Hunter's Ferry Road in Jessamine County. He had been shot in the face before the vehicle was set on fire. Dunn was identified two days later with the help of dental records.
Peel and Henson were arrested and indicted Wednesday. Both are being held in the Jessamine County jail.
Daugherty scheduled a Nov. 14 pretrial conference.
