Mannequin Attempted Murder Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 30-year-old man who police suspect killed two sleeping homeless men in Las Vegas pleaded not guilty Thursday to attempted murder in an unusual case alleging he tried to kill a mannequin that police posed as a decoy near the scene of the earlier slayings.

Shane Allen Schindler has not been charged in the Jan. 4 bludgeoning death of Daniel Aldape or the Feb. 3 killing of David Dunn, who police say were apparently sleeping when they were attacked.

Schindler pleaded not guilty Thursday to attempted murder and carrying a concealed weapon in an indictment filed last week following his arrest Feb. 22. A judge set trial for Aug. 8.

Schindler was arrested after police say he attacked the blanket-covered head of the mannequin posed as if asleep in a vacant downtown lot.
