An accused killer pled not guilty to capital murder Tuesday in a Dothan courtroom.
Attorneys for 58-year-old Joseph Holly entered a plea of not guilty because of mental disease.
Holly is charged in the shooting death of 38-year-old James Layton, Jr.
Layton was killed by a shotgun blast as he opened the front door of his home on Saunders Road in July of last year.
Prosecutors claim Holly entered the house illegally by using a key hidden under a doormat.
A March 5 trial date has been set.
Holly is being held without bond in the Houston County Jail.
