A man who faces 24 counts in connection with the fatal shooting of Rainier police chief Ralph Painter pleads not guilty to all charges. A judge recently ruled that Daniel Butts, 24,  is competent to stand trial for Painter's murder. Butts underwent mental evaluation after being disruptive during his initial arraignment a year ago. He is accused of shooting Painter with the chief's own gun during a struggle at a car stereo shop in Rainier in January 2011. A trial date has not been set.
