PITTSBURG, Kan. (AP) — A Pittsburg woman has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the shooting death of her husband.

Carla Moutz entered the plea Monday to one count of first-degree murder in the May death of 49-year-old John Moutz. The trial was scheduled to begin Oct. 7.

The Pittsburg Morning Sun reports (http://bit.ly/14VWqsL ) the trial is scheduled for Girard but potential construction at the Crawford County Courthouse may relocate the trial to Pittsburg.

John Moutz died at Pittsburg hospital after being shot at a home where his wife was staying. The home was owned by Carla Moutz’s father.
