Brother Pleads Not Guilty To Aiding Arizona Murder Suspect

The brother of an Air Force airman charged in the death of a Sunday school teacher has pleaded not guilty to a charge of attempting to hinder prosecution. Authorities say Samuel Gooch flew to Arizona from Wisconsin last month to pick up what he thought was the rifle used in the killing. His younger brother, Mark Gooch, has pleaded not guilty in the fatal shooting of 27-year-old Sasha Krause. Krause had been living in a Mennonite community in New Mexico when she disappeared in January. Her body was discovered in the forest outside Flagstaff.
