BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) _ A Michigan prison escapee is to be

tried in Arkansas on charges related to a three-day crime spree

that ended when he was shot in the face by a police officer.

Eighteen-year-old Adam Lee Leadford pleaded innocent Friday to

charges in Washington County of second-degree battery and fleeing.

Bond was set at 100-thousand dollars. Leadford's trial is set for

June 13th.

Leadford also faces charges in Benton County, where counts that

include theft, fleeing, and assault have been filed against him.

During the hunt for Leadford, and Arkansas state trooper shot

and killed a mentally disabled man who was mistaken for Leadford. A

grand jury is to begin an investigation Monday to determine whether

Trooper Larry Norman was justified in shooting Joseph Erin Hamley.
