Assault suspects enter not guilty pleas

Friday, December 16, 2005

Three of the Southeast Missouri football players charged with attacking two other students at a fraternity party entered not guilty pleas Thursday.

D'Eldrick Taylor, Timmy Holloman and Frederick Williams appeared before Associate Circuit Judge Gary Kamp. All three posted $5,000 bond through a bail-bond company and have been released from jail.

A fourth person charged, Gerald Breedlove, has not been arrested as of Thursday afternoon, Cape Girardeau police spokesman Jason Selzer said.

All four are charged with misdemeanor assault for beating two sophomores, Ransom Ward and Shaun Johnson, early Dec. 4 after a party at the Pi Kappa Alpha lodge on South Sprigg Street.

Holloman will be back in court Monday to set a date for a trial. Taylor will appear Jan. 19 for a hearing on whether he has been able to hire an attorney. No court date was available for Williams.

All four players were suspended Wednesday from the Redhawks football team.
