Brett Knight Pleads Not Guilty to Horse Trainer’s Murder

Updated October 24, 2013 
The man accused in the shooting death of a Long Island equestrian trainer pleaded not guilty to murder charges. Brett Knight was ordered held without bond.
Knight faces second-degree murder, second-degree attempted murder, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and three counts of aggravated harassment. The charges stem from the murder of Ross Reisner and the wounding of his partner Kevin Murray.
After a national manhunt by the Feds and local authorities, Knight was located in Tennessee and extradited to New York.
Ross Reisner was shot in the chest on September 24 when a stream of bullets entered his home through a window. Reisner’s long-time life partner, Kevin Murray, was grazed by a bullet, but was not seriously hurt.
If found guilty, Knight could face 25 years to life behind bars for the crime.
