Crow Reservation shooting suspect pleads not guilty to new charges


HELENA (AP) – A Wyoming man has pleaded not guilty to fatally shooting a Montana husband and wife who stopped to help what they believed was a stranded motorist.

A new grand jury indictment includes death as a possible punishment if 18-year-old Jesus Deniz Mendoza of Worland, Wyoming, is convicted of murder in the July 26 deaths of Jason and Tana Shane. Their daughter, 26-year-old Jorah Shane, was wounded while trying to run away.

Investigators say the family stopped to help a man who claimed to be having car trouble in Pryor. They say Deniz demanded money and opened fire after they said they had none.
