Attempted murder suspect pleads not guilty in court
BENNINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - A Vermont man accused of attempted murder pleaded not guilty in court on Monday.
Police say Zachary Dumas, 37, tried to strangle a woman earlier this month when she wouldn’t give him money to buy drugs.
It happened while Dumas was on furlough, leading to a weeklong search to take him into custody.
Police say he avoided being captured a few times, including by jumping out a second-story window.
Bennington police captured him over the weekend.
Dumas will continue to be held without bail.
