A Tecumseh woman charged with second-degree murder in the death of Tecumseh Police Officer Justin Terney entered a not guilty plea on Wednesday.

Brooklyn Danielle Williams, 23, appeared for arraignment during the scheduled felony docket. Her case now advances to the docket on Feb. 28, 2018.

Williams and Byron James Shepard, 36, both had a preliminary hearing earlier this month, where a judge bound both of them over for trial.

Williams was the driver of the vehicle involved in a March traffic stop. Shepard, her passenger, fled from the vehicle into a nearby treeline, where Officer Terney was shot. Terney died the next day, while Shepard, who was injured by gunfire from Terney's weapon, was treated for his injuries and then released to the jail.

Shepard faces a first-degree murder charge and the death penalty in the case; his next court date is scheduled Dec. 13.

In addition to the murder charge, Shepard also was bound over for trial on a charge of knowingly concealing stolen property relating to the stolen firearm used in the homicide, along with a charge of possession of controlled dangerous substance, methamphetamine, which officers found on his person that night en route to the hospital.

Shepard remains jailed without bond; Williams is jailed on a $250,000 bond.
