October 4, 2018

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Attorneys have entered not guilty pleas on behalf of two men charged with murder and a third facing lesser charges in a fatal robbery outside a Nashville bar.

In Davidson County Criminal Court, attorneys appointed for Demontrey Logsdon and Horace Williamson III entered not guilty pleas Thursday to charges that include first degree murder and aggravated robbery.

They are accused of killing 30-year-old Jaime Sarrantonio and 33-year-old Bartley Teal in a parking lot in August. The victims had left The Cobra bar in Nashville and two others were with them, but weren’t injured.

A court-appointed attorney entered a not guilty plea for a third suspect, Lacory Lytle, facing charges that include identity theft and fraudulent credit card use.

Police have said the crime might be linked to other local shootings.
