Jared Briley, 25, of Waldron entered a plea of not guilty in a Scott County Circuit Courtroom on Tuesday, June 2.

Briley was appointed a public defender, and waived formal arraignment. The jury trial is set to begin August 18, at 9:30 am.

Briley was charged with first degree murder in March, after a woman’s body was found at a rented room at the Southern Nights Motel, 1622 Rice Street in Waldron. Following an investigation by the Special Agents of the Arkansas State Police, Criminal Investigation Division, a warrant was issued for Briley’s arrest.

Briley eluded officers over the next 24 hours, but was eventually apprehended on Sunday, March 22. Briley was booked into the Scott County Detention Center, and granted a $750,000 commercial bond.

As of Monday, June 8, Briley remained at the SCDC.
