Former Sean Cody Model "Chase"- James Richard Huffman IV
pleaded innocent to murder, first-degree assault, and second-degree assault
James R. Huffman, 37, was arrested over three years ago after allegedly stabbing to death a college student on New Year’s Day in 2014. In almost every court case of this magnitude, there are continuous, changes of venue, new evidence which is why he is now finally standing trial for murder.
The victims of the crime had been celebrating the coming of the New Year earlier in the night at StreetSide Grill and Bar on Main Street in Whitesburg. Video surveillance recorded at StreetSide shows no sign of an altercation occurring there or the presence there of either Huffman or Smith, owner Charlie Wright revealed to the authorities.
