Schenectady man pleads not guilty to second-degree murder at Colonie hotel

A Schenectady man has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder Wednesday in Albany County Court.

Justin Wells also pleaded not guilty to robbery, conspiracy and grand larceny.

This is connected to the death of Donald Harmon during an incident at LaQuinta Inn & Suites on Loudon Road last January.

Court documents say Wells intentionally gave fentanyl to the 66-year-old Harmon, causing his death.

Wells is also accused of stealing property from Harmon, including a car and two credit cards.

Two co-defendants previously pleaded not guilty in the case.

All three are due back in court on October 14.
