Man accused of killing priest pleads not guilty

Steven Murray, 28,  of Jacksonville has plead not guilty in court Friday morning regarding the death of Father Rene Robert. 

Father Rene Robert, originally of New York, lived in St. Augustine when he reportedly stopped to help Murray.

Murray was arrested back on April 14, 2016 in South Carolina. Investigators say Murray was upset when he was captured but he complied with all of their commands.

An autopsy on the body confirmed that the cause of death was homicide due to multiple gunshots.

Many who worked with Father Rene says he was a humble man, often seen wearing sandals and a Yankees hat.
