Not Guilty Pleas Entered by Teenage Austin Murder Suspect
Austin, MN (KROC-AM News) - A teenager accused of a recent murder in Austin today entered not guilty pleas to three counts of second-degree murder.
18-year-old Miguel Nunez is accused of shooting and fatally wounding 45-year-old David Harris during what Austin police described as a drug-related robbery at the victim's home on June 5th. Nunez fled to his hometown of Sioux Falls Dakota and was captured on July 8th. He is due back in court next month for an evidentiary hearing and remains jailed on $500,000 conditional bail.
Meanwhile, Austin police are still looking for an alleged accomplice. An arrest warrant was issued late last week for 20-year-old Keith Forrest, who is also from Sioux Falls. He is charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and first-degree robbery for his alleged involvement in the crime.
