TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A Washington state man who authorities say shot and killed two masked, armed intruders at his marijuana grow operation last year has been indicted on federal drug and gun charges.
    
Jeremy Peter Capodanno pleaded not guilty at a Thursday court hearing in Tacoma.
    
The Seattle Times reports U.S. District Judge Ronald Leighton ordered Capodanno held in custody. The judge scheduled a detention hearing for April 23. Trial was set for June 21.
    
Police said the 36-year-old shot and killed two men who broke into his Puyallup garage last Dec. 6, the day marijuana possession by adults became legal under state law. His 7-year-old son was home at the time.
    
The Pierce County prosecutor's office determined that Capodanno acted in self-defense in the shootings.
    
An indictment unsealed Thursday accuses him of manufacturing marijuana under federal law as well as firing and possessing guns during a drug crime.
    
It was not clear if Capodanno had an attorney.
