Lloyd Barrus pleaded not guilty to 25 felony charges, including accountability to deliberate homicide in the shooting death of Montana Deputy Mason Moore.

Defense attorney, Craig Shannon, tells KULR-8 his client, 61-year-old Barrus was arraigned in district court in Townsend Friday.

Barrus entered a not guilty plea to charges stemming from the death of Mason Moore and a pursuit on Interstate 90 that ended in another shootout.

That shootout 35 miles east of Missoula resulted in Barrus' son Sarshall dying from a shot to the head the next day.

Barrus' charges include 5 counts of attempted deliberate homicide, 2 of accountability for attempted deliberate homicide and 10 counts of assault on a peace officer.

Prosecutors have not decided if they will seek the death penalty.
