BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - The man accused of fatally shooting two men, his fiancée’s father and a Baton Rouge police officer, on April 26 entered a plea to charges relating to their deaths during an arraignment hearing Friday, Oct. 23.
Ronnie Kato, 36, pleaded not guilty to two charges of first-degree murder for the deaths of Curtis Richardson, 58, and Sgt. Glenn Dale Hutto Jr., 45.
Police say Hutto and Maglone were shot while conducting a “knock and talk” at Kato’s home in the 3150 block of Conrad Street. The two officers were attempting to talk to Kato after receiving a report that hit his fiancée in the head with a pistol and had shot Richardson while firing several shots into a house on Pamela Street.
Kato is also facing six counts of attempted first-degree murder, one count of aggravated battery, and five counts of home invasion.
A status hearing for Kato has been set for Jan. 21, 2021.
