DENVER (CBS4) – The man accused of setting off a destructive device inside a Borders bookstore and a device at a Mexican restaurant appeared in federal court on Wednesday.

David Lawless pleaded not guilty. He was ordered to be held without bond pending a resolution of the case, which means he will likely remain in federal custody until his trial, which is tentatively scheduled for Oct. 3.

A federal grand jury indicted Lawless on charges of arson and use of a destructive device during a crime of violence.

Lawless is accused of planting bombs at the Borders inside the Colorado Mills Mall in Lakewood on June 25. He is also accused of arson at the Urban Sombrero restaurant.
