Suspect in Family Research Council shooting pleads not guilty to new charges

The suspect in the August 15 shooting of a security guard at the conservative Family Research Council in Washington pleaded not guilty Friday in a federal court to charges in the case.

Floyd Lee Corkins II was arraigned for the second time after seven new charges were filed against him Wednesday.

They include attempted murder, aggravated assault, second-degree burglary all while armed and three counts of possession of a firearm during a crime of violence. Corkins also was charged with committing an act of terrorism while armed, a charge that has never previously been prosecuted.

Corkins now faces a total of 10 counts in the case.

His public defender sought and was granted a continuance in the case to review the new charges.

The next hearing in the case is scheduled for December 3.
