Four Prairie Grove residents facing murder charges related to the death of 48-year-old Ronnie Lee Bradley pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Washington County Circuit Court.
Arraignment is usually a criminal defendant’s first appearance in court or before a judge on a criminal charge. At arraignment, the charges against the defendant are read or the defendant is asked if he is aware of the charges against him, and is asked how he wishes to plead. It is not a hearing to determine guilt or innocence.
