WALSENBURG, Colo. (AP) -- A Colorado judge has ruled that charges from other states can be used in a case against a woman accused in a three-state crime spree.

Lee Grace Dougherty has pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted second-degree murder, assault and other charges related to a high-speed chase and what authorities say was a shootout before their capture Aug. 10. Her trial is set for Feb. 21. Her two brothers are also facing charges.

During a hearing Monday, the judge ruled that all events leading up to the woman's arrest can be introduced in trial, including alleged crimes she and her brothers committed in Florida and Georgia.

The trio is accused of shooting at a police officer in Florida and robbing a bank in Georgia.
