A burning cross, a Smith county man beaten and shot by a family member, and in critical condition. We are told this is much more than a family feud, and outraged family members are calling it a "hate crime."
The man police say opened fire inside a Fremont bar, killing three people has pleaded not guilty to murder and other charges.
Igmidio Mista pleaded not guilty to three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder, one count of felonious assault and one count of possessing a firearm in a liquor permit premises. A judge continued his bond of $5 million.
Ramiro Sanchez, 28, who was the bartender, Jose "Andy" Chavez, 26, an off-duty Elmore police officer hanging out at the bar, and Daniel Ramirez, 25, also a patron of the bar, were all shot and killed inside the bar early on the morning of March 9.
Mista's defense says they need more information before developing a defense strategy.
"I have to see what kind of evidence the state has. We filed our discover demand, they're obligated to turn some evidence over, and we'll start evaluating it," said defense attorney David Klucas.
Mista is due back in court for a pretrial hearing on April 21. If convicted on all counts, Mista could face 75 years to life in prison.
