PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Pittsfield man has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges in the death of a Goshen man who was shot in the leg.

The Berkshire Eagle reports (https://bit.ly/1JRNMAs ) that Peter J. Campbell faces a mandatory life sentence with the chance of parole after 15 to 25 years if convicted of murder.

Police say the 18-year-old Campbell shot Anthony Gamache in the leg in a botched robbery attempt Nov. 18.

The post-mortem exam was inconclusive but the state’s chief medical examiner later determined that the 29-year-old Gamache died of a blood clot caused by the gunshot wound to the leg.

Police say the bullet went into Gamache’s right leg, chipped the femur and remained lodged in his leg. He died after cardiac arrest.

Campbell’s lawyer says he’s awaiting the autopsy report.
