Accused S. Zanesville shooter pleaded "not guilty"

Suspect previously avoided conviction in 2004 murder

ZANESVILLE, Ohio -- The man accused in a fatal shooting at Burger King on in South Zanesville last month entered a plea in court on Wednesday.
Thirty-four-year-old Timothy Daniel pleaded "not guilty" in Muskingum County Common Pleas Court to one count each of aggravated murder with a firearm specification, having a weapon while under a disability, felonious assault, carrying a concealed weapon and improper handling of a firearm in motor vehicle. Daniel also requested to defend himself.
Daniel faces life in prison if convicted. Daniel is accused in the shooting death of 61-year-old Charles Hooper of Zanesville in the south end restaurant just before 10 a.m on October 31.
According to the Franklin County Clerk of Courts website, Daniel was charged with murder in 2004. He also was charged with carrying a concealed weapon and having a weapon while under a disability. During that trial Daniel reportedly fired his attorney and represented himself. In that case he was found not guilty of murder and not guilty of carrying a concealed weapon by a jury. The Court did find him guilty of having a weapon while under a disability.
In a related case, the man accused of provding transportation for Daniel last month pleaded not guilty to two counts of obstructing justice. 33-year-old Jamie Jarrett had his bond continued at $100,000. Both men are being held in the Muskingum County Jail.
