ANCHORAGE (AP) -- The man accused of murdering longtime Anchorage car salesman Paul Clinton last November entered not guilty pleas Monday in Anchorage Superior Court.
Antonio Garrison, 37, was arraigned four days after a grand jury indicted him, charging first-degree murder, two counts of evidence tampering, misconduct involving weapons, robbery, theft and vehicle theft.
Clinton, 40, owned Clinton Auto Sales. He was found shot to death on Nov. 1 inside his office.
His father, James Clinton, said Monday he had met Garrison before his son's murder, and that Garrison and his son had a business relationship.
Clinton was married and the father of four children.
The Friends of Homicide Victims Reward Fund in January offered a reward of up to $20,000 for information leading to the arrest or conviction of whoever shot Clinton.
