Blodgett Pleads Not Guilty To Manslaughter

Justin Blodgett, who is facing a felony manslaughter charge related to the death of Raymond Terrill, pleaded not guilty yesterday. Terrill died in Craig in March, after he and Blodgett had reportedly been involved in an altercation. 14th Judicial District Chief Judge Michael O’Hara gave Blodgett a deadline of September 7th, to accept the state’s deal to plead guilty to criminally negligent homicide.  If Blodgett declines to accept the plea agreement the case will go to trial starting Thursday November 30th. Judge O’hara also gave District Attorney Brett Barkey, 30 days to file additional charges in the case.  Blodgett is currently working in Grand Junction.  He has been fitted with a GPS monitor and is subject to blood alcohol and urine analysis tests.
