Date set for trial in road rage murder

An April 23, 2019 date has been set in Jasper County Circuit Court for the first degree murder of trial of Chris Montz, 24, Neosho, who is charged with the June 9 road rage killing of David Reynolds, 27, Carthage.

Montz pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Wednesday.

The probable cause statement detailed the confrontation between Chris Montz, 24, Neosho and David Reynolds, 27, Carthage, at Highway 249 near the intersection with I-44.

The 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.
