TUSCUMBIA, Mo. — A man accused of killing two people and injuring a third at a Lake Ozark RV park has pleaded not guilty.

KRCG reports 58-year-old Gary Sweet entered the plea Monday in Miller County Court. His next court date was scheduled for Dec. 6.

Sweet is charged with two counts of first-degree murder in the shooting deaths of Sheri and James Parker last week at the Riverview RV Park in Lake Ozark.

He is also charged with first-degree assault and several counts of armed criminal action.

Authorities say Sweet was recently been evicted from the park.

His next court date was scheduled for Dec. 6.

Online court records don’t show that Sweet has an attorney.
