A Scottsville man who made a public apology on Facebook minutes before the mother of his infant child was shot to death has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.
The Daily News reported 23-year-old Ethan Reid made his first court appearance Wednesday since being charged with murder-domestic violence in the shooting death of 20-year-old Kaylah Hodges.
Scottsville Police Detective John Rose said officers called to the scene in Scottsville on October 3 found Hodges shot once in the back on the front porch of a residence.
Police said Reid posted an apology on a Facebook account shortly before the shooting that said in part, "Sorry guys. I'm truly not this bad of a person. I've been pushed to this point over of time."
