A Hannibal man accused of shooting three people, one of them fatally in January, was in Marion County Circuit Court Friday morning.

Timothy Brokes waived his preliminary hearing and entered a plea of not guilty to charges in connection with three separate shootings in Hannibal, Marion County and Monroe City.

Brokes allegedly admitted to police that he shot Aaron Gauch in Marion County, went to Hannibal and killed Brittany Gauch. Then, as the manhunt for Brokes concluded, he shot a Monroe City Police Officer before being wounded himself.

Brokes’ next court appearance was set for June 20th.
