Robert Bowers, the man prosecutors say carried out the mass shooting at Pittsburgh's Tree of Life synagogue that left 11 people dead in October, has pleaded not guilty to 19 new charges.

Bowers in November had already pleaded not guilty to 44 counts in connection with the shooting, which also wounded seven people, per BBC News. But in January, a federal grand jury indicted Bowers on additional counts, which included 11 hate crime charges, as reported by The Daily Beast. Bowers pleaded not guilty to these charges Monday.
