A man already in prison pleads not guilty to charges from a 2010 murder. 27-year-old Marventi Palmer is serving 20 years on a Jefferson County conviction for dealing drugs in the Shawnee Correctional Center in Vienna. His lawyer entered the not guilty plea Tuesday in the same county. He has also waived his right to a speedy trial. Prosecutors say Palmer played a role in the murder of teenager Deon Feggins. The 15 year old’s body was found on a Mount Vernon street with multiple bullet wounds in August 2010. He died later at a nearby hospital. The charges against Palmer were filed in January.
