CASCADE COUNTY, Mont. (WTVR) — The Virginia man accused of bombing the homes of two law enforcement officers and his ex-girlfriend pleaded not guilty to the charges against him.

Lawrence Stewart appeared in court in Montana on Thursday. Stewart was arrested in that state after police said he fled from Virginia, where the crimes occurred.

The 25-year-old is charged with three counts of attempted deliberate homicide for throwing pipe bombs into three homes in Stafford and Fredericksburg.

Stewart is slated to go on trial in March.
