The man accused of murdering a well known Rockford businessman pleads not guilty.

Roland Breault appeared in court Thursday morning.  He’s accused of stabbing Joe Pendergrass to death in Loves Park last month.  The State’s Attorney’s office also filed a motion to revoke his bond to get him back in jail.  A hearing for that has been set for July 18th.

Prosecutors also asked for pre-trial monitoring, Breault’s passport and VISA, and proof that he no longer has access to his guns.
