ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP/KMOV.com) - Pamela Hupp pleaded not guilty in a St. Charles County courtroom Monday morning.

Hupp is a St. Louis woman accused of killing a man in an effort to shift attention away from herself in another killing. 

Prosecutors say Pamela Hupp took 33-year-old Louis Gumpenberger to her home in O'Fallon, Missouri, in August and fatally shot him. She is accused of planting evidence to make it appear Gumpenberger was trying to kidnap her and recover $150,000 in insurance money she received after the murder of a friend, Betsy Faria, in 2011.

Hupp has been charged with first-degree murder in Gumpenbeger's death.

Russell Faria was convicted of killing his wife but was acquitted in a retrial.
