The alleged triggerman in a murder-for-hire scheme in Clay County pleaded not guilty Thursday at his initial court appearance.
Roscoe Henson, 32, is charged with murder in the July 27 slaying of Trevor Dykes, 24.
Police have charged Thomas Daniel Miracle with paying Henson to kill Dykes.
Miracle, 35, was dating a woman who was once Dykes' girlfriend and had a child with him.
Never miss a local story.
Police suspect that Miracle arranged to have Dykes killed because of a dispute between Dykes and his former girlfriend over custody of their child.
Dykes was gunned down just outside the door of his home as he left for work.
Officers with the Clay County Sheriff's Office arrested Miracle on Tuesday evening. He has pleaded not guilty.
On Wednesday, Henson contacted the sheriff's office and arranged to turn himself in, Sheriff Kevin Johnson said. Officers met Henson and arrested him Wednesday afternoon.
Johnson said his office is investigating whether others were involved in the plot.
Miracle and Henson are scheduled to be back in court next week.
