Missouri woman pleads not guilty to evidence tampering charges


The woman who allegedly tampered with evidence related to her former boyfriend's murder trial plead not guilty in court Tuesday morning.

Rebecca Kirk plead not guilty to charges of tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution, and a jury trial date was set for July 18.

Kirk allegedly dismantled the rifle Calvin Pettey used to murder his fiance, Sandy Fugate, back in April of 2010. She reportedly burned the wood stock, threw the remaining pieces in a Ralls County river and threw out rifle ammunition into a Pike County creek. 

Pettey was convicted of murdering Fugate in June 2012. A pre-trial conference for Kirk has been set for June 25.
