PRATTVILLE, Ala. (AP) — A central Alabama man is pleading not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect in a triple homicide.
The Montgomery Advertiser reports that 35-year-old Marty Morgan entered the plea Tuesday in Autauga County Circuit Court.
He and 19-year-old Keon Dashon Cain are both accused of entering a Prattville barber shop on the night of July 3 and shooting three men.
Both are indicted on two counts of capital murder, one count of burglary and seven counts of armed robbery.
Morgan also asked for time to consider claiming self-defense.
Cain is seeking youthful offender status and will be arraigned later if the court denies that request.
If labeled a youthful offender, Cain would serve a maximum of three years in prison.
Both Morgan and Cain are jailed without bail.
