Bails Set In Clark Fork Body Homicide Case

MISSOULA -

 

New details emerge in an apparent murder under the Reserve Street Bridge as two suspected accomplices appear in court.

21-year-old Kenneth Hickman and Mechailiah Tembreull both appeared in Missoula County Justice Court on Friday.

Hickman is charged with felony aggravated assault after police say he caused serious injury to 36-year-old Gilbert Berry, by striking him in the head and knocking him to the ground. The suspects were identified by Berry's girlfriend, who told police she and Berry were camping under the bridge on July 30 when Hickman, his girlfriend Tembreull, and two other suspects, Kevin Lino and Angela Marchese, came into the camp and started being very aggressive toward others.

Court documents said Hickman and 27-year-old Lino started beating Berry very badly and cut gang symbols into him. Hickman told police it was Lino who later shot Berry in the head with a 9mm pistol, but said he wasn't there when it happened. He said Lino later carried Berry's body to the Clark Fork River and dropped it in.

A fisherman spotted Berry's body on August 5 in the river near Orchard Homes. A judge set bail at $150,000 for Hickman, and $50,000 for Tembreull who is charged with accountability for aggravated assault, a felony.

Authorities are still searching for Kevin Lino and Angela Marchese who are said to be traveling with a large group of pit bulls in a white 2014 Ford Focus with West Virginia plates. They are believed to have left the state. Anyone with information is asked to call 9-1-1, the sheriff's office at 258-4800 or Crimestoppers 721-4444.
