Editor’s Note: This is one of several posts we’ll be featuring on the recent arrest in connection with the Copper Dollar Murders. The FindJodi.com team investigated possible links between Jodi’s disappearance and the Copper Dollar Murders beginning in 2002 and for several years after up until this year. If this arrest leads to an eventual conviction, we believe it will close a chapter and end a lead and possible connection to Jodi’s case we’ve felt strongly about for many years.
Wearing handcuffs and jail-issued orange attire, Terri Supino appeared at her arraignment hearing in Iowa’s Jasper County Courthouse this morning. As many expected, her court-appointed attorney submitted a written plea of not guilty in connection with the murders 31 years ago of her estranged husband and his girlfriend. Steven Fisher and Melisa Gregory were found bludgeoned to death at the Copper Dollar Ranch near Newton on March 3, 1983.
A pre-trial court date has been set for May 19, and a trial date has been scheduled for June 23.
