Neosho man arraigned, pleads not guilty in road rage killing

A Neosho man charged with first degree murder and armed criminal action for the alleged road rage killing of David Reynolds, 27, Carthage, pleaded not guilty during a video arraignment this morning in Jasper County Circuit Court.

Judge Joseph Hensley appointed a public defender for Christopher David Montz, 24, and scheduled the next hearing in the case for 9 a.m. Wednesday, June 27.

The shooting took place on Highway 249, apparently following an altercation on the road.
The probable cause statement indicated Montz and Reynolds pulled to the shoulder and while the men were arguing, Reynolds punched Montz twice in the face. Montz pulled a gun and shot Reynolds in the head.

Montz is being held in the Jasper County Jail on a $50,000 cash only bond.
