ST. GEORGE — Sasha Michelle Davis, a 21-year-old who is accused of attempting to kill a man with a hammer earlier this year, pleaded not guilty to her charges Tuesday.

Along with Kade Robert Shearer, 21, Davis is accused of luring a man to a remote area of Washington County, beating him with a mini-sledge hammer, tying him up, shocking him with a stun gun and stealing his belongings on April 14.

Davis and Shearer are each charged with aggravated attempted murder, aggravated assault, aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping and a misdemeanor for tampering with evidence.

Davis appeared in court Tuesday via video conference from the Purgatory Correctional Facility to enter her not guilty pleas through her attorney, Aric Cramer.

Shearer was not able to appear to enter his pleas Tuesday due to him being a federal inmate at the jail. His arraignment was rescheduled for Nov. 13.
