VANCEBURG | The three individuals charged in relation to the death of Heather Stone, pleaded not guilty to the charges on Friday in Lewis Circuit Court.

Stone was killed after being struck by a vehicle on Kinney Road in October.

Jesse (Logan) Bertram, 25, John C. Glispie, 36 and Brian Clark, 26, all of Garrison, went before Judge Robert Conley to plead not guilty after Clark and Bertram were indicted on the charge of reckless homicide. Glispie was also indicted for reckless homicide, with the added charge of second-degree persistent felony offender.

Bertram was originally arrested in November, but was released on Nov. 19. Glispie and Clark were arrested Friday and Bertram was arrested again on April 17. All were lodged in the Lewis County Detention Center, where they remain.

The November arrest citation for Bertram said she was "one of three individuals seen by witnesses assaulting a female subject and leaving the incapacitated female laying in the middle of the roadway on Kinney Road."

According to Sheriff Johnny Bivens, the incident in question occurred Thursday, Oct. 31, around 11 p.m. His officers were called to a disturbance along Kentucky 1306. Upon arrival, the officers found Stone lying in the middle of the roadway after having been struck by a passing vehicle.

Stone, who lived in the Trace Creek area, was transported to Southern Ohio Medical Center in Portsmouth, Ohio. She died from her injuries while in the hospital, according to Bivens.
