HARRISON, Ark. – The man accused of a Harrison Murder this month pleads not guilty.
Boone County Circuit Court records show 54-year-old Robert Burgess pleaded not guilty on Friday to one count of capital murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. According to Harrison Police Chief Paul Woodruff, 48-year-old Robert Ivy of Harrison was found dead inside his home on Bluebird Street on March 7th, with apparent gunshot wounds.
Woodruff says Burgess was Ivy’s roommate and according to witnesses, the two may have gotten into a domestic scuffle that night.
Burgess is still in the Boone County Detention Center without bond.
