Two men arrested in connection with an alleged murder-for-hire plot in McCreary County pleaded not guilty at their arraignment Thursday.
Antonio Turner, 21, and Joseph Denning, 19, are charged with unlawful imprisonment, conspiracy to commit murder and complicity to commit robbery.
Another person accused in the plot, Timothy Prater, had already been in custody.
Police say the three attacked Debbie Taylor at her home. Investigators say they cuffed her and beat her but ended up being stopped by neighbors.
The alleged master mind of the plot, Regina Stephens, was later found dead from an apparent suicide.
