Alexandre Bissonnette, Quebec mosque shooting suspect, pleads not guilty to all charges”

The man accused in the slayings of six men at a Quebec City mosque has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges against him.

Bissonnette appeared in a Quebec City courtroom Monday and as the charges were read aloud, he answered "not guilty" to each count relating to the attack January 29, 2017.

Alexandre Bissonnette, who was handcuffed and had shackles around his ankles, entered the 12 not-guilty pleas in Quebec Superior Court ahead of pre-trial motions to be debated this week.

The day also marked by the presentation of preliminary motions by Bissonnette's lawyer that will have an effect on what evidence will be presented. Details of the motions have been slapped with a publication ban.

The case will go to trial in about two months and jury selection begins April 3. Five of the attempted murder counts apply to those wounded in the shootings while the sixth includes everyone else who was in the mosque at the time of the attack.

Bissonnette faces six counts of murder and six of attempted murder.

Many members of Quebec City's Muslim community were present in court Monday.
