Men Who Face Murder Charges go to Court

Two men facing murder charges in connection to a Paducah shooting appeared in court on Thursday. Officials say 24-year-old Jermaine Harris and 21-year-old Demonta Woodward both entered a not-guilty plea. The men were arrested following an August 8 shooting that killed one man and injured four others. The shooting was reportedly the result of an on-going violent feud between two groups of people from Mounds and Cairo. Police say members of the two groups came to Paducah that evening to attend Emancipation Day festivities. Harris was arraigned on charges of murder, four counts of assault, wanton endangerment, and convicted felon in possession of a handgun. Woodward was arraigned charges of murder, four counts of assault, wanton endangerment, and criminal mischief. Both Woodward and Harris have a pretrial conference scheduled for February 5 at 1 p.m.
