DOVER, TN (WSMV) - The man who garnered national attention after leading police on a 14-day manhunt last year has pleaded not guilty to all of his charges.

Kirby Wallace was arraigned Monday morning on nine charges, including first-degree murder, felony murder, attempted first-degree murder and aggravated arson.

The manhunt for Wallace started in September after he was suspected of killing two people in two different counties. Wallace was later found in a wooded area within Stewart County.

Several family members of the victims were in court watching the proceedings on Monday morning.
