Kenneth Keith Allen, 48, of Burnside entered the plea Wednesday morning in Boyle District Court. Keith is charged with shooting the owners of ABC Gold Games and More, 35-year-old Michael Hockensmith and his wife, 38-year-old Angela Hockensmith, and a gold broker, 60-year-old Daniel Smith of Richmond.

All three were killed inside the shop on Sept. 20.

Police say Keith was upset with the Hockensmiths and accused them of hurting him financially.

Keith's attorneys say police have charged the wrong man in the shootings.
