PROVO, Utah (AP) - An Orem man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he killed his 25-year-old wife for nearly $1 million in insurance proceeds.

Thirty-one-year-old Conrad Truman entered the plea Monday to charges of murder and obstruction of justice in the 2012 shooting death of Heidy Truman.

She was shot point-blank in the head at the couple’s home in September 2012.

According to investigators, Conrad Truman has offered various accounts of how his wife got shot. He has speculated the shooting was either the act of an intruder, an accident or a suicide.

Prosecutors say money was the primary motive in the killing. They say several life insurance policies had been taken out for Heidy Truman, and Conrad Truman stood to receive $878,767 in the event of his wife’s death.
