BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - A 19-year-old pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a felony charge related to a bomb scare at the University of Mary.

In February, police were alerted of a threat made on an anonymous social media platform and traced the threat to Chase Hoechst. Hoechst said he meant the post as a joke, court documents report.

Judge Bruce Romanick scheduled Hoechst to stand trial in June on a terrorizing/building evacuation charge.
