Woman pleads not guilty in husband’s death

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 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.
