The suspects accused of murder in the shooting death of a 24-year-old man last week had not guilty pleas entered on their behalf Monday in Fayette County District Court.
Daniel J. Glasscock, 28, and Destiny A. Huff, 22, were arraigned on charges of first-degree robbery and murder. They both appeared through a video feed from the Fayette County jail.
They are charged in the death of Victor Villagomez-Duarte, 24, of Denver.
Villagomez-Duarte was outside the Microtel Inn at 2240 Buena Vista Drive just after 9 a.m. Sept. 5 when he was shot in his right shoulder, according to Lexington police. He died Wednesday at University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital.
Never miss a local story.
Huff told police that she was with Villagomez-Duarte when he was shot, according to court documents. She told investigators that a passenger in a vehicle shot Villagomez-Duarte and that she could identify the driver.
After she provided contact information for the driver, investigators determined that she had called the suspect immediately after she had spoken to the victim on the phone before the shooting, according to court documents.
Phone records showed that Huff was the only person who had made contact by phone with all of the people involved in the shooting, including the suspect and the victim, according to court documents. Records also showed that Huff contacted the suspects multiple times after the shooting and after her interview with police.
A witness told police that the driver of the vehicle involved in the shooting had a “D” tattooed on his face, according to court documents. Through a photograph line-up, the driver was identified as Glasscock.
Huff and Glasscock are scheduled to appear back in court on Thursday for a hearing.
