A Las Vegas man pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in Burlington on Wednesday to a federal kidnapping charge

A Las Vegas man pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court in Burlington on Wednesday to a federal kidnapping charge involving a Northeast Kingdom man later found shot to death four years ago. Aron L. Ethridge, 42, is the second man indicted in connection with the abduction of Gregory Davis, 49, from his Danville home and his subsequent fatal shooting, court records show. He is charged with conspiring between October 2017 and January 2018 with Jerry Banks, 34, of Fort Garland, Col. and others known and unknown to the grand jury in the kidnapping case. The indictment said Banks called Ethridge on Jan. 7, 2018 “to inform him that Davis has been successfully kidnapped and murdered.” No further details about Ethridge were provided in the indictment.
