The brother and sister suspected of robbing the New Liberty branch of First Farmers Bank & Trust in February pleaded not guilty in a court appearance March 12.
Aaron L. Jones, 23, of Fort Mitchell and Wilma Renee Jones, 32, of Carrollton, were both appointed public attorneys after being indicted last week.
A third suspect in the robbery, Todd E. McIntyre, 42, of Ghent, did not appear in court. His arraignment was continued to March 26.
A $50,000 cash bond has been set for each of the three suspects.
The robbery took place Feb. 23, when according to KSP, video from bank cameras showed the alleged perpetrator entering the bank and going to a teller window. The subject reportedly told the tellers to give them “all their money.” After getting the money, the perpetrator fled the bank in an unknown direction.
The amount of money taken has not been released.
Aaron Jones and Wilma Jones were arrested March 2 in Fort Mitchell.
