MOUNT VERNON, Mo. (AP) - A southwestern Missouri man charged in the shooting death of an 82-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder.

The Joplin Globe (https://bit.ly/2iYMpIx ) reports 44-year-old Shannon Hensley entered the plea Monday in Lawrence County Circuit Court in the death of Nolan Karch.

Authorities say deputies who responded to a report about a possibly deceased person at Karch’s home near Aurora found Karch’s body on a floor Jan. 2.

Hensley was arrested Jan. 4 on an unrelated charge.
