A man police say helped beat another man nearly to death leaving him for dead in a lake pleaded not guilty in Bell County Circuit Court Friday.
A grand jury indicted 20 year old Abraham Sherman for attempted murder, robbery and arson. Police say he attacked William Carroll at Cannon Creek Lake in August and left Carroll in the lake to die. Sherman has not been arrested, but is free under certain conditions. He's due back in court in April.
26 year old Tommy Joe Mills has also been charged in Carroll's attack.
