BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — A Louisiana man plead not guilty to charges he shot and killed a state trooper and one of his relatives during a series of shootings last month in southern Louisiana.

According to authorities, Matthew Mire ambushed Master Trooper Adam Gaubert while he sat in his patrol car writing reports at an intersection in Pairieville. Mire then allegedly shot two of his relatives at a house less than a mile away.

One woman was killed. An Ascension Parish grand jury indicted Mire on Oct. 14 on two counts of first-degree murder, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and other charges. If convicted, Mire could face the death penalty.
