Davenport Pleads Not Guilty in Rodney "Bo" Hale Murder Case

The man facing charges in the death of a Hopkins County man pleads not guilty today.
The man facing charges in the death of a Hopkins County man pleads not guilty today. Craig Davenport's attorneys tried to get his bond reduced, but that was denied.

He faces second-degree manslaughter charges surrounding the disappearance of Rodney "Bo" Hale. Hale's remains were found this Summer.

Davenport was arrested last month. Authorities say Davenport was the last person to see Hale, and after a confrontation, he allegedly hid Hale's body in a drain pipe.

Hale's family says today is a small step in a long road ahead.

"I pray and ask the community to pray for justice to be done for the act that was done," said Cindy Hale. "Whoever, whatever happened, however anything happened, just justice be served to the actions that was done. And please, please allow the family to heal."

Davenport will be back in court January 13.
