The Missoula man charged with shooting a German exchange student has pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide.
Markus Kaarma, 29, was arraigned today in the April 27 death of 17-year-old Diren Dede.
Prosecutors allege Kaarma and his girlfriend set up motion sensors and video cameras to try to catch the thieves who had recently burglarized their garage.
Kaarma is accused of firing four shots into the garage after they spotted a trespasser. Dede was hit in the head and arm.
Kaarma has said he feared for his life and was defending his property.
