CHELSEA, Mass. --A 20-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to the murder of a Revere police officer.
Robert Iacoviello Junior was ordered held without bail following his arraignment in Chelsea District Court.
His attorney, Peter Krupp, says Iacoviello did not shoot officer Daniel Talbot on September 29 and accuses police of intimidating witnesses in their rush to make an arrest.
Iacoviello is the second person to be charged in Talbot's killing, joining 17-year-old Derek Lodie, who has pleaded not guilty to being an accessory to murder.
Prosecutors say Talbot and several other police officers were drinking beer and socializing in the bleachers at the Revere High School athletic field when Lodie exchanged angry words with the officers.
Lodie then allegedly called Iacoviello, who is accused of shooting Talbot in the head.
