HUNTINGTON -

Tennis Maynard, 37, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to shooting and killing Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum. 

Maynards attorney, Rich Weston, entered the plea more than a month after his client was arrested and taken to a Huntington hospital. 

Maynard was released shortly before the hearing, held in Cabell County to keep him close to the hospital. 

"He's still in a lot of pain," said Weston about Maynard. 

Maynard was shot several times following a chase with Mingo County law enforcement. Court documents allege Maynard shot Sheriff Crum just blocks from the courthouse during his lunch break on April 3. 

Sheriff Crum's widow, and newly appointed sheriff Rosie Crum was at the hearing, comforted by Sheriff's Department officials. She declined comment following the hearing. 

Maynard will have his bond set at another hearing on June 17 at 1:30 p.m. His trial was set for October 21 in Mingo County. 

Mingo County Prosecuting Attorney Michael Sparks believes he can have the trial held in Mingo County.
