Former Palm Beach Gardens officer pleads ‘not guilty’ in shooting death of Corey Jones

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FLA. (WSVN) - A former Palm Beach Gardens officer faced a judge and pleaded not guilty, Friday.

According to court documents, Jones, a drummer, had left a gig before dawn when his SUV broke down on the PGA Boulevard off ramp on Interstate 95, in Palm Beach Gardens, Oct. 18. A fellow band member tried unsuccessfully to jump-start the vehicle, then left Jones, 31, to await a tow truck along the dark off ramp in the affluent city north of West Palm Beach.

Nouman Raja remains on house arrest as he faces charges of manslaughter and attempted first-degree murder.
