LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A pet shop owner accused of torching her business entered a plea of not guilty at a court appearance Monday morning.

Gloria Eun Hye Lee appeared in Las Vegas District Court for her arraignment. She and Kirk Bills face 31 charges including arson, conspiracy, burglary and attempted animal cruelty.

The two are accused of setting fire to Lee's store where firefighters rescued 27 puppies.

Bills also made a court appearance. He was in Las Vegas Justice Court. He will return to court on Thursday, Feb. 20 for a bail hearing. Bills was arrested Feb. 7 in Crown Point, Ind., and returned in custody to Las Vegas. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 10.

Lee, who is being held on $310,000 bail, is due back in court on June 4, 2014 for a pre-trial hearing.

Authorities say Lee and Bills are seen on security video setting the Jan. 27 fire at Lee's Prince and Princess pet store.
