A trial is scheduled to begin Tuesday for a Columbia man accused of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action.
Knowledge Wilson, 18, is accused of first-degree robbery and armed criminal action. Authorities said on Feb. 12 of this year, Wilson stole a man’s gun and threatened the man with it.
Boone County deputies said the victim told officers that the two agreed to meet when the victim decided to buy a handgun accessory from Wilson. They met near Wilson’s home on Bethany Drive in February.
During that alleged meeting, the victim said Wilson stole his gun and threatened him with it.
Wilson pleaded not guilty to the charges.
The trial is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday.
