Franciscan brother-to-be pleads innocent in priest murder.

A man recently ousted from his training to become a Franciscan brother pleaded innocent Tuesday to charges that he fatally shot a Roman Catholic priest and set fire to his church office. Daniel Montgomery, charged with aggravated murder and aggravated arson in the slaying of the Rev. William Gulas, 68, was ordered held without bond. He was due back in court Jan. 14. Montgomery, 37, was silent during the five minute hearing in Cleveland Municipal Court. Defense attorney Henry Hilow said afterward that he had not yet discussed the case with his client. Authorities would not comment on a motive.
