Lockwood Homicide Suspects Plead Not Guilty

Posted: Updated:

The Billings man accused of killing a man in Lockwood earlier in January pled not guilty in court Thursday.

Martin Pond, 27, is charged with deliberate homicide, tampering with evidence, and intimidation.

On January 3, dispatchers received complaints about gunfire on Wasco Avenue in Lockwood. When Yellowstone County Sheriff's deputies arrived, they located 52-year-old Allen Alderman's body in his yard. Authorities say it appeared Alderman died of gunshot wounds.

Three other suspects in a Lockwood homicide appeared in court too, and pled not guilty. Cody Mack, Calvin Mack, and Katrina Edens were charged with obstructing justice by accountability. Cody Mack also is charged with tampering with evidence.

The prosecutor says Cody Mack and his girlfriend, Edens, drove Pond to a Lockwood home where Pond allegedly shot Alderman. Court documents show that, after, they helped wash Pond's clothes and gave Pond a minivan that belonged to Cody Mack's son, Calvin. Prosecutors also say Cody Mack told his son not to talk about the crime and to report the car as stolen.
