DENVER (KDVR) — An 18-year-old who was charged over his alleged involvement in a Green Valley Ranch arson that killed a family of five pleaded not guilty in court on Thursday.
Kevin Bui, who was 16 years old at the time of the arson, is accused of intentionally setting and burning down a home in the Green Valley Ranch neighborhood in the summer of 2020. The fire originally broke out just before 3 a.m. at 5312 North Truckee St. on Aug. 5, 2020.
Five members of a Senegalese family were killed, including a 1-year-old and a 7-month-old.
