CLEVELAND (AP) — An ex-convict has pleaded not guilty in Cleveland in the death of a 5-year-old girl shot in the head while sitting in a car with her mother.


A judge continued the $5 million bond for 32-year-old Geoffrey Gurkovich of Cleveland at Wednesday's court hearing.


Another hearing is scheduled for Monday on 18 counts including aggravated murder and attempted murder.


Gurkovich is accused of killing Jermani  Brooks last month in a shooting that also wounded her mother.


Police said the girl was not the intended target and allege Gurkovich intended to shoot a man who got into an argument with his girlfriend.


A message was left for the suspect's attorney.
