Man accused of Lexington murder pleads not guilty

A man charged with murder in the death of a 22-year-old man who was shot at a townhouse in Lexington's Woodhill neighborhood pleaded not guilty to charges Friday in Fayette Circuit Court.

Elzandrae Antonio Warren, 28, of Lexington, is scheduled to return to court March 25 for a status conference.

Warren is one of five people facing charges in the shooting death of Darryl Delano Carter on Nov. 29, and the shooting of Ira Joseph Robinson, 28, who survived after being shot in the leg and having his throat slit. Police have said the shooting was drug-related.

Warren, Daniel Devon Gadson, 28, and Montrevell Lewis were charged with murder. The three men also were charged with first-degree robbery and first-degree assault. Gadson, Warren and Natalie Susanne Abreu also were indicted on a charge of tampering with physical evidence. Gadson, Warren, Lewis, Abreu and Robin Lashay Christopher were indicted on charges of first-degree possession of cocaine and possession of marijuana.
