PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Pine Ridge woman accused of firing a rifle after two federal police officers arrested her for allegedly stealing a vehicle has pleaded not guilty to several charges including intent to commit murder.

Authorities allege 54-year-old Connie Wilson slipped out of handcuffs in the back seat of a patrol car in Pine Ridge on Aug. 29, got ahold of a rifle, loaded it and fired a shot through the floor of the vehicle when officers approached. No one was hurt.

U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Wilson recently pleaded not guilty and had her trial scheduled for Nov. 14. She could face up to life in prison if convicted.
