LIMA — A 16-year-old boy pleaded not guilty Monday to an amended indictment that includes murder over the killing of a man at Meat City earlier this year.
Albert McDowell III, 16, pleaded not guilty to two counts of murder with a firearm and one count of felonious assault with a firearm. The murder charges only alleges one killing, but two counts were included under two separate sections of law under the charge of murder.
The two charges gives the jury a chance to choose either charge based on the section of law the jury believes better fits the crime, said Holly Urbanick, an assistant Allen County prosecutor.
