LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Two of three people charged in the fatal shooting of a Canadian tourist in town for the Kentucky Derby have entered not guilty pleas.

WAVE-TV (https://bit.ly/1PovGpI) reports that Tyrone Thomas Jr. and his girlfriend, Fatima Abu-Diab, appeared Tuesday in Jefferson District Court to answer charges in the death of 49-year-old Scott Hunter of Toronto. A judge set bond at $500,000 each.

Police have said Hunter died while trying to fight off three people who robbed him at random during a crime spree amid the festivities of the horse race.

According to police records, Thomas is accused of firing the fatal shots, and Abu-Diab is accused of driving the getaway car. Police say her brother, Fahed Abu-Diab, also was involved.

Each faces charges of murder and a dozen counts of armed robbery.
