Mengedoht was killed while conducting a traffic stop on a busy stretch of Interstate 64 on Monday.

Roger Burdette, an MSD worker who was driving an MSD truck, allegedly slammed into the back of Mengedoht’s stopped police vehicle on I-64 just near the Belvedere. Burdette pleaded not guilty Wednesday to the charges of murder and operating under the influence.

Mengedoht, 32, a seven-year veteran of the force, was pronounced dead at the scene.

The clock will remain blue until Mengedoht’s funeral services, which have yet to be announced.
