Good Friday Shooting Suspect Enters Not Guilty Plea

One of the men accused in the so-called Good Friday shootings has pleaded not guilty.

According to court minutes, Jake England stood silent when asked for his plea in his murder case. England and Alvin Watts are charged with gunning down three people and wounding two others in an April.

Both men are charged with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of shooting with intent to kill and five counts of malicious intimidation or harassment.

Alvin Watts, did not enter a plea. Attorneys said Watts will enter a plea after they file a motion seeking that he be tried separately from England.

Prosecutors have said they will seek the death penalty against both men.
