Dinh Bowman, the man charged with fatally shooting motorist Yancy Noll in an apparent road rage incident on Aug. 3, pleaded not guilty to first degree murder in King County Superior Court this morning.
Via the Seattle Times:
Dozens of Noll’s friends attended the brief arraignment hearing at the King County Courthouse, many wearing buttons featuring a photo of the slain man and the slogan, “Cheers to Yancy Noll.”
Brad Kenny, who was friends with Noll for 22 years, said they believe that police and prosecutors have the right suspect in custody.
“We do believe justice will be served,” Kenny said.
Bowman, who was charged with murder late last month, is accused of pulling his car alongside Noll’s vehicle at a stoplight and firing five times, striking Noll three times in the head, according to charging documents. A 9-mm bullet casing was found next to Noll’s car, a spent bullet was found in his dashboard and another bullet, shot through a window, was found inside a nearby house, the papers say.
