Plea offers rejected in James Street shooting death

By WKTV News

UTICA, N.Y. (WKTV) - Two of the three men authorities say are connected to a shooting death on James Street in the City of Utica have rejected plea offers.

Octavius Garrett and Dominique Cook both appeared in Oneida County Court on Monday, where they rejected the deal presented to them by the Oneida County District Attorney's Office.

Details of the plea offer were not made public.

Garrett and Cook, along with a man named Marshall Jackson, are accused in the May 2011 shooting death of Anthony Garner on James Street, which was caught on surveillance.

Jackson has already begun serving a sentence of 25 year to life in State Prison for the crime.

No trial date has been set for Garrett and Cook, as the next step is motions to be filed by their attorneys by September 25.
