HOPKINSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Three adults charged with sodomizing a 15-year-old boy who suffered critical injuries in the attack have entered not guilty pleas.

The Kentucky New Era (https://bit.ly/1sJkpev) reports 20-year-old Dayton R. Jones, 18-year-old Samuel A. Miller and 19-year-old Tyler R. Perry were arraigned by video Wednesday in Christian County Circuit Court.

Meanwhile, the newspaper reports a court docket shows a 17-year-old boy charged in the case is set to be arraigned on Thursday and will be charged as an adult.

In all, six people have been charged in the case, with some counts stemming from sharing video of the attack.

Police say the boy was sodomized in October while incapacitated at a house party in Hopkinsville.



The adults are each being held on $1 million bonds, though defense attorneys are seeking reductions.
