Alleged Pittsburgh synagogue shooter pleads not guilty to dozens of charges

The suspect in a shooting at a Pittsburgh synagogue in which 11 people died pleaded not guilty to dozens of charges on Monday as his new lawyer, a prominent death penalty litigator who represented one of the Boston marathon bombers, signaled he might be open to a plea deal.

Authorities say Robert Bowers, a truck driver, killed 11 and wounded seven, including five police officers, at Tree of Life Synagogue in October.
