2 men enter not guilty pleas in slaying

PIKEVILLE, KY (AP) - Two men arrested in the death of a Pike County man whose body was found in the remnants of his burned home have pleaded not guilty to charges of murder and robbery.

Jeffrey Michael Lowe and Randy Thomas are charged in the killing of Millard Clay Thornhill, who was found in the ashes of his burned-out mobile home in the Hatfield community on May 19.

The two 44-year-old men, both from Turkey Creek, were arraigned Monday in Pike District Court, according to the Appalachian News-Express. Judge Darrell Mullins set a $2 million full cash bond for the men.
