A Wayne County man accused of murder in the shooting death of his brother-in-law entered a not guilty plea to the charge during an arraignment held Monday, December 16.

    Tim Reynolds made his initial appearance in Wayne Circuit Court on 
Monday with his attorney Lance Turner.
    Reynolds also entered a not guilty plea to the charge of tampering 
with physical evidence. He was indicted on the charges by a local 
grand jury on November 26. The charges stem from the shooting death 
of Mark Duncan, 52, which occurred in the Meadow Creek community on 
September 24.
    According to state police, the investigation indicated that the two 
family members were involved in a disagreement that led Reynolds to 
shoot Duncan.
    The citation alleges that Reynolds said he shot Duncan multiple 
times, hit him over the head with a wrench and then returned home to 
report the incident and wait for law enforcement to arrive.
    Duncan was found lying on the ground near his residence on Duncan Road.
    Reynolds was arrested on the charges shortly after the shooting 
occurred. He was released from custody on a property bond that was 
posted on November 27, according to court records.
    A pretrial conference in the case is set for March 3 in Wayne Circuit Court.
