PRESTONSBURG, Ky. (AP) — A Kentucky man accused of killing three officers in an ambush while police were serving a protective order has pleaded not guilty to 20 charges. News outlets report 49-year-old Lance Storz appeared in Floyd Circuit Court on Monday to answer the charges. Police say Storz opened fire on a group of officers June 30 at his home. Storz was indicted last month by a grand jury on three counts of murder of a police officer and six counts of attempted murder of an officer. He was also indicted on seven counts of wanton endangerment, three counts of assault and one count of assaulting a service animal.
