The man accused of killing eleven people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh pleaded not guilty to new charges, according to Reuters.
Robert Bowers was charged with additional federal counts, including hate crimes, for assaulting the Tree of Life synagogue in late October.
The 46-year-old pleaded not guilty to the 19 new charges. Bowers now faces 63 charges for the shooting, including obstruction of religious exercise, and use of a firearm to commit murder.
Federal prosecutor Tony Rivetti said it will take three weeks to determine if they will seek the death penalty.
