ASHLAND — Stanley Gardner, 71, of Ashland pleaded not guilty Monday to a recently-added aggravated murder charge for the early September shooting death of his son. 

On Sept. 2, police responded to Gardner's home after his daughter-in-law found him bleeding, bruised, and swollen. After police arrived, they discovered the body of his son, Jason Gardner, apparently shot to death.
