One of the Iowa men accused in a bank robbery and chase that led to the shooting of a police officer pleaded not guilty Monday.

Nineteen-year-old William Clayton, of Osage, is facing attempted murder, terrorism, assault, intimidation with a dangerous weapon, and robbery charges in connection with the October 30th incident.

Police say Clayton and 24-year-old Jeremiah Mumford of New Hampton robbed the Maynard Savings Bank in Maynard, then led law enforcement on a chase that ended just outside of Frederika in Bremer County.

Sumner Police Chief Dennis Cain and Iowa State Trooper Mark Domino were shot during the chase.

Mumford has already entered a written plea of not guilty in the case.

The trial for Clayton and Mumford has been set for January 23rd, 2013.
