A Zanesville woman pleads not guilty to multiple charges including attempted murder. Dyanne Stewart went before Common Pleas Judge Kelly Cottrill to make her plea in connection with a shooting incident on January 8th. Stewart also reserved the right to enter a not guilty plea by reason of insanity. Muskingum County Sheriff Matt Lutz says Stewart is accused of shooting three times at a male. The defendant also faces other charges including felonious assault, improper handling of a firearm in a motor vehicle and carrying a concealed weapon. The victim in this incident was not hurt. Judge Cottrill continued Stewart’s bond at 500-thousand dollars. She remains in the Muskingum County Jail.
