Man Accused Of Helping Homicide Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

A Barre, Vermont man has denied helping a homicide suspect leave the state following the first slaying in the nation's smallest capital city in nearly a century.
Reginald Jones pleaded not guilty Thursday to accessory after the fact for allegedly helping Jayveon Caballero avoid arrest. Jones had no comment on Caballero, who remains at-large.

State police say the 36-year-old Jones took Caballero to a bus station in White River Junction last Sunday and bought him a bus ticket.

An arrest warrant has been issued for the 29-year-old Caballero in the shooting of 33-year-old Markus Austin in the parking lot outside of his apartment in Montpelier early Sunday morning.

Authorities say the two were involved in an altercation outside a bar in Barre. Witnesses say Austin assaulted Caballero's girlfriend.
