FARGO, N.D. (Valley News Live) - The man accused of shooting a couple and their unborn child last November says he’s not guilty. That was the plea Monday from Anthony Reese to all 3 counts of murder related to the shooting at a factory in North Fargo, Composite America, at 401 27th Street North. The deadly incident happened just minutes after co-workers say Reese was fired.

Both 43-year-old Richard Pittman and 32-year-old April Carbone were killed. Carbone was 35-weeks pregnant. Co-workers say Pittman was helping Reese fix a machine on November 17th when Reese started cussing at Pittman and causing a scene. Witnesses say Reese was fired and escorted out, but gunshots rang out moments later after documents say Reese grabbed a firearm from his car.

Reese will be back in court next month.
