STEUBENVILLE, Ohio -- Stephen Threats, the man accused of shooting and killing 22-year-old Chad Taravella last month outside of a Wintersville apartment, was arraigned Thursday inside a Jefferson County court.
Through his attorney, Threats entered not guilty pleas to his aggravated murder charge and tampering with evidence.
The victim's mother sat in the courtroom along with her sisters and two friends, saying they will be at every proceeding to seek justice.
Threats has a pending assault case in Pennsylvania.  Because of that, and because of threats' limited ties to the area, the judge kept his bond at $1 million.
A trial date will be set in the coming weeks.
