A New Castle man has been charged with second degree murder after a weekend argument turned deadly.
Robert Steven Elston, 54, of New Castle, was charged in the death of Joseph D. Burch. Elston entered a not guilty plea in Henry County District Court Monday.
Judge Jerry Crosby set Elston’s bail at $1 million. Elston remains lodged in the Carroll County Regional Detention Center, and is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on July 14. An attorney from the public defender’s office will represent Elston.
