FAYETTEVILLE, AR - Justin Wade Trammell, who was convicted as a juvenile of using a crossbow to kill his father, has pleaded not guilty in Fayetteville to a terroristic threatening charge.
Prosecutors say Trammell threatened to kill Chelsea Jabusch, who is the mother of Trammell's child. During a hearing yesterday, trial was set for April 26.
Washington County prosecutors issued a warrant for Trammell late last month. Investigators say Jabusch told police that Trammell threatened to kill her while she was sleeping and take their 3-year-old child.
Trammell was 15 when he was convicted of killing his father.
On New Year's Day, Trammell was pulled over by police while in a vehicle with one of the Westside Middle School shooters, 22-year-old Mitchell Johnson. Police say the two were roommates in Fayetteville.
Trammell and Johnson are both free from their juvenile sentences. During the traffic stop, Trammell was given a ticket and Johnson was cited for having marijuana and a firearm.
