NYACK - An Orange County father accused of a 2013 vigilante killing pleaded not guilty to murder today.

David Carlson, of Sparrowbush, was back in court today after he was indicted last week for a second time. A judge threw out the case last year due to a faulty grand jury presentation.

Carlson is accused of fatally shooting wanted rape suspect Norris Accosta Sanchez, who was on the run from police.

Carlson maintains he acted on self-defense.

News 12 is told he is due back in court next month, but his attorney says the trial will likely begin in the fall.
