John Earnest appeared in court on Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to murder charges following Saturday's attack on Chabad of Poway, in which 1 woman was killed and 3 were left injured, The Daily Beast reports.
Driving the news: The 19-year-old suspect remained silent during his arraignment as the public defender assigned to his case entered his not-guilty plea. The judge has ordered Earnest to be held without bail for allegedly murdering Lori Kaye, 60, along with with 3 other counts of attempted murder. San Diego County District Attorney Summer Stephan's office is reportedly weighing whether to pursue a life without parole prison sentence or the death penalty. Prosecutors say the alleged shooter purchased the semiautomatic rifle — the weapon used in Saturday's attack — legally.
