The 23-year-old accused of opening fire inside Los Angeles International Airport and killing a TSA screener last month pleaded not guilty today to the charges. Paul Ciancia, who got shot before his arrest, had a bandaged neck and barely managed a whisper when asked to acknowledge his name in court, reports AP. The trial is set for Feb. 11 in the shooting spree, which also wounded three others. The New Jersey native faces 11 federal charges in all, including murder and terrorism, and could get the death penalty if convicted. (Read more Los Angeles International Airport stories.)
