Arraignment for alleged Killer in Hermann MO

At 7:30 the doors to the Gasconade County Courthouse remained locked as officers performed security checks around the courthouse to include using K-9 units. Hermann’s police chief was seen at the memorial inside the courthouse speaking to officers before the suspect in Monday’s murder of a Hermann Police Officer. Signs were posted at the courthouse forbidding cell phones, cameras, audio and video recording devices in the courthouse by order of the presiding judge issued March 14th, 2023. 

At around 7:45am officers from Gasconade County Sherriff and Hermann police department escorted the family into the courthouse and kept everyone else out until the family was settled. As the bells tolled 8am in Hermann the courthouse doors remained closed. Shortly after the bells tolled a Gasconade Sheriff’s deputy advised those outside that the court was having some technical video issues but would be open shortly.
