Vermont man accused of attempted murder pleaded not guilty
A Vermont man accused of attempted murder pleaded not guilty in court on Monday. Police say Zachary Dumas, 37, tried to strangle a woman earlier this month when she wouldn’t give him money to buy drugs. It happened while Dumas was on furlough, leading to a weeklong search to take him into custody. Police say he avoided being captured a few times, including by jumping out a second-story window. Police captured him over the weekend and will continue to be held without bail.
