VICKSBURG, Miss. (AP) - A teenager accused of breaking into the same home five times has a trial date scheduled for Dec. 14.

The Vicksburg Post (https://bit.ly/1Jcqsxt ) reports 18-year-old Donyae Lyons appeared in court Friday. Lyons’ lawyer, Brannan Southerland, spoke on Lyons’ behalf and issued a not guilty plea.

Lyons faces five counts of burglary and two counts of grand larceny. He is accused of breaking into the home of a couple older than 65 four times between Feb. 13 and March 31.

After posting bail on the counts, authorities say Lyons broke into the home again with several men wearing masks.

An indictment against Lyons says he stole guns, jewelry, a Civil War knife collection and a camera among other items.

It is unclear the motive for break-ins at the same house.
