OWENSBORO — Five teenagers have been charged in a fatal shooting during a home invasion in Western Kentucky.
Two of the teens charged in the death of a Maceo man last week pleaded not guilty Friday.
Joshua Paul Orr, 18, and Dakota Christopher Galloway, 18, were arraigned by videoconference in Daviess District Court.
Galloway and Orr, along with three juveniles, are charged with capital murder and first-degree robbery in the fatal shooting of Joshua Edward Newcomb, 23.
Newcomb was shot in the neck with a shotgun, according to the Daviess County Sheriff's Department.
Five people entered Newcomb's home about 1:30 p.m. CST Wednesday in an attempt to rob him, investigators said.
A witness, who was in the home at the time of the shooting, identified Orr as the shooter, sheriff's department reports said.
At Friday's hearing, automatic pleas of not guilty were entered for Orr and Galloway.
The three juveniles, who have not been identified because they are younger than 18, had been scheduled to make their first court appearance Friday, but the hearing was rescheduled for Monday.
An examining trial for Orr and Galloway has been set for Wednesday.
An examining trial is when evidence is presented and the judge decides whether the evidence is sufficient to send the case to a grand jury.
Orr and Galloway were denied bond during Friday's hearing.
Capt. Bill Thompson, head of investigations for the Daviess County Sheriff's Department, said divers are waiting for ice to clear before they could search a lake where deputies think the shotgun was dumped, Thompson said.
