RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A suspect accused of firing 11 shots through the window of a Long Island home, killing a popular equestrian and wounding the man’s partner, has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges.
Brett Knight was arraigned Wednesday on a six-count indictment. His lawyer said Knight is looking forward to fighting the charges.
Knight is charged in the Sept. 24 killing of Ross Reisner in Setauket. Prosecutors said one of the bullets grazed the forearm of Reisner’s partner, Kevin Murray.
As WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported, Murray had tears in his eyes as he talked about his partner of more than 20 years.
“Thank you all because we lived such a beautiful life together,” he said.
