The man accused of killing a Louisiana State Trooper and a woman during a killing spree in three parishes last month has pleaded not guilty, WBRZ reports.

Matthew Mire is charged with killing Pamela Adair, who Mire knew prior to the shooting, and also Master Trooper Adam Gaubert.

Mire is facing two counts of first degree murder in Ascension Parish, and is also facing charges in Livingston and East Baton Rouge Parishes for attempted murder.

Prosecutors say there's a "strong likelihood" they'll pursue the death penalty.

Mire is currently in Angola State Prison and is due back in court on November 9.
