Lasure pleads not guilty in ex-boyfriend's slaying at Lexington Green

A Lexington man pleaded not guilty Thursday in circuit court to charges that he fatally shot his ex-boyfriend in the Lexington Green parking lot off Nicholasville Road.

Toby Ray Lasure is charged with murder, wanton endangerment, fleeing police and leaving the scene of an accident in the shooting death of Christopher Tolliver, 31, on March 5.

Police said Lasure, 31, shot Tolliver twice. He led police on a chase across town that ended with a three-hour standoff.

Lasure is being held in Fayette County jail on a $1,010,045 bond. His next scheduled court appearance is May 21.
