COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A 17-year-old boy has pleaded not guilty in the shooting deaths of four people at an Ohio home last summer.

Jordyn Wade is accused of helping a 27-year-old accomplice rob five people, then stand with his gun drawn while the accomplice shot the victims. One victim survived.

An indictment against Wade, who was 16 at the time of the shootings, includes charges of aggravated murder, aggravated robbery and kidnapping.

WCMH-TV (http://bit.ly/1Itfmqz ) reports that Wade entered a not guilty plea Thursday, and his attorney didn't contest a $5 million bond set earlier.

The Associated Press doesn't typically name juveniles but is identifying Wade because he is being tried as an adult.

Wade's attorney has said he continues to investigate the facts in the case.
