LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Dressed in a red-and-white jail-issued jumpsuit, and a bullet-resistant vest, the man accused of killing three people in a Danville, Ky. pawn shop answered to charges of murder Tuesday morning.

Kenneth Keith was handcuffed and shackled at the ankles when he walked into a Boyle County, Ky court. He pleaded not guilty to killing Michael and Angela Hockensmith and Daniel Smith.

The three were found murdered inside the ABC Gold, Games & More in September.

Police say lab results show shell casings from the crime scene match Keith's gun. Keith's lawyer talked about the extra precautions getting him to court this morning.

"Well, we don't want anybody shot on the way to court, and in cases like this, there's always the possibility that some vigilante will run around with a gun and start shooting at people," said Mark Stanziano, Keith's attorney.

Keith is currently being held without bond, but a hearing has been set for next month to determine if that will change.
