The suspect in the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre pleaded not guilty Monday to a new indictment that added 19 additional counts, but his lawyer expressed hope the case will be resolved without a trial.
Robert Bowers, a truck driver who authorities say gunned down 11 people at Tree of Life Synagogue, appeared in federal court with his
new lawyer, prominent death penalty litigator Judy Clarke, who signaled that Bowers might be open to some sort of plea. Clarke's past clients have included one the Boston Marathon bombers, a 9/11 conspirator and Unabomber Ted Kaczynski.
Bowers, who was shackled, said little, giving yes or no answers.
