With his not guilty plea, the case will now go to jury trial. No date has been set in Bond County court. The other defendants in the case, 19-year-old Jason McCullough and 20-year-old Barton Davis were also to have been in court recently but the dates for both were rescheduled. The Dairy Queen employee told police that he was leaving the business with the night deposit when two men in ski masks approached him and displayed a gun. The employee was struck in the face by one of the men and they fled with a money bag. Police say a third man was waiting nearby in a car. Stewart, McCullough, and Davis were arrested a short time later on Old National Trail near Rocky Mountain Avenue and charged for their alleged involvement in the armed robbery.
