A Peabody man pleaded not guilty Thursday in a home invasion murder from this summer, according to WCVB.
Peter Bin, 25, of Bay State Road, Peabody had been arrested in October on charges in connection with the July 7 murder of Quintin Koehler, 22, of Billerica. Koehler was shot to death when at least three men entered his home in the middle of the night, intending to rob him, police say.
The Salem News reported in the fall that Bin was a junior at Salem State University and lived with his parents.
Adam Bradley and Jason Estabrook also pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges including murder and are being held without bail.
A fourth man, Gabriel Arias of Lynn, pleaded not guilty to misleading a criminal proceeding and was ordered held on $20,000 bail, WCVB reported.
In October, Middlesex County District Attorney Gerry Leone said his office would argue Bin was part of a plan with Estabrook and others to rob Koehler, believing there was marijuana and money inside the home. During an armed home invasion and a resulting struggle, Koehler was shot in the head.
