A Mid-Missouri man will be back in court next month to face charges in the death of a Mid-Missouri trooper.
ABC 17 News has learned Serghei Comerzan pleaded not guilty to charges stemming back to the August death of 25-year-old James Bava.
A judge denied Comerzan’s request in December and raised his bond for second degree murder and resisting arrest.
Officials said Comerzan was on a motorcycle and tried to escape Bava, who was following him for speeding in Audrain Co.
Bava ended up crashing on Highway FF near the Boone Co. line and died.
