July 29, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

An antiabortion activist pleaded not guilty to killing late-term abortion provider Dr. George Tiller.

Scott Roeder, 51, also is accused of threatening two ushers who tried to stop him at Tiller's Wichita church during the May 31 shooting. Roeder's lawyer entered the not-guilty plea to first-degree murder and aggravated assault charges. Roeder did not speak.

A judge ordered him held on $20-million bond and set a trial date for Sept. 21.
