Not guilty pleas heard on numerous assault charges

Greenville – Three Greenville men have entered not guilty pleas to a total of 18 charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Ryan Thomas McConley, Demarkus Terral Nelson and Darius Terrell Starling each recently received six aggravated assault indictments in connection with the May incident. Tentative trial dates for all three men have been set for January.

Authorities believe the alleged assault may have been connected to a disturbance earlier that day during a graduation ceremony at the New Horizons Learning Center in Greenville. The three men are said to have used a handgun to threaten four female and two male victims.
