Man charged with Perry County murder pleads not guilty, gets new judge

Sunday, October 23, 2011

Steven Harbour
PERRYVILLE, Mo. -- A man accused of murder after he allegedly gave drugs to a woman found dead in a Perryville hotel room in June pleaded not guilty and was granted a request for a new judge Friday.

Steven A. Harbour, 25, of Fredericktown, Mo., was granted a motion for change of judge to Division II Judge Benjamin Lewis, who he will appear before on Nov. 4. at the Perry County courthouse.

Harbour remains in custody on a $500,000 cash-only bond.

Perry County Prosecuting Attorney Thomas L. Hoeh alleges Harbour supplied Nicole Jones, 20, of Perryville, with a deadly cocktail of painkillers, antidepressants and alcohol.

When first questioned by police at the scene, Harbour told officers his drugs were locked up in the hotel room's safe, according to court records. He said he wasn't in the room all the time but his key was in the room, so it was possible someone had gotten to his pills.

Harbour told police that he gave Jones three oxycodone, three clonazepam and three amitriptyline, according to court records. Harbour also told police he bought alcohol that Jones and another underage girl consumed.
