DENVER (CBS4) – Three men accused of fatally stabbing five people at a Denver bar and then setting the bar on fire to cover up the killings have pleaded not guilty.
Dexter Lewis and brothers Joseph and Lynell Hill each face multiple counts, including first-degree murder, felony murder, robbery and arson.
The attack happened last October.
Prosecutors have until July 26 to decide whether to seek the death penalty.
Investigators say the men originally intended to rob Fero’s Bar & Grill. They were arrested after someone in another case told authorities that he was with the men during at least part of the attack.
