The man accused of fatally shooting a woman and wounding six people at an Antioch, Tennessee, church last September pleaded not guilty during his arraignment today. Officers say 26-year-old Emanuel Kidega Samson did not appear in court on a 43-count indictment, including first-degree murder, attempted murder and felony civil rights intimidation charges. He was indicted this month. An arrest affidavit says Samson waived his rights and told police he arrived armed and fired at Burnette in September. In October, Nashville Police Detective Steve Jolley testified that a note in Samson’s car referred to a white supremacist’s 2015 massacre at a South Carolina black church. Jolley said Samson told him he didn’t give much thought to race or religion, and he heard voices and had visions.
