HUMBOLDT, Tenn. (AP) -- A suspect in the fatal shooting of a Humboldt car dealer has pleaded not guilty to murder and robbery charges.
The Jackson Sun reported Ivin Lee Robinson was in court Monday to enter his plea. Co-defendant Jacquita Evette Ingram appeared by closed-circuit video and told Judge Clayburn Peeples she needed a court-appointed attorney to represent her.
Peeples did not set bond and scheduled the next hearing in the case for Oct. 9.
Robinson and Ingram are charged in the December 2010 killing of James Sims, owner of Sims Motors in Humboldt. Police arrived to find Sims had been shot in the abdomen.
Investigators have said others could have also been involved.
