LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — A man charged in another man's murder has pleaded not guilty in Fayette County Court on Monday.
Brandon is charged with murder and possession of a handgun by a convicted felon.
The charges stem from a shooting that killed 30-year-old Raymar Webb in late June. Police were called to a parking lot on W. Short and N. Mill for a shots fired call. When officers got to the scene, they found Webb suffering from a gunshot wound. He was taken to a hospital where he later died from his injuries. Webb's death was the 20th homicide in Lexington this year, surpassing last year's 14 cases at this time.
Dockery was found staying at a friend's apartment on July 28. The friend, Courtney Brown, lied to the police and U.S. Marshals about his whereabouts. Brown was charged with hindering prosecution and apprehension in the first degree. Dockery was later found at Brown's residence and arrested.
Prior to this incident, Dockery was on parole for arson and attempted murder charges. Dockery's preliminary hearing is set for August 10.
