COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) - A judge has entered not guilty pleas for Jonathan Renfro, who is charged with first-degree murder and other felonies for the May 5 shooting of Coeur d’Alene police Sgt. Greg Moore.

Renfro on Wednesday chose to stand silent rather than plead guilty or not guilty to the charges.

So 1st District Judge Lansing Haynes entered pleas of not guilty to all six charges.

If convicted of murder, Renfro could receive the death penalty. Kootenai County Prosecuting Attorney Barry McHugh has not announced if he will seek the death penalty.

The Spokesman-Review reports the 27-year-old Renfro is accused of shooting Moore in the face in a residential neighborhood after the officer stopped to question him around 1:30 a.m.

Renfro remains in the Kootenai County Jail on $2 million bail.
