PADUCAH, Ky. (AP) -- Two top officials in McCracken County have pleaded not guilty to tampering with public records.

Reports say Judge-Executive Van Newberry and Deputy Judge-Executive Doug Harnice were arraigned Thursday and McCracken Circuit Court.

The two were indicted last week by a grand jury in connection with unauthorized zone changes in the county affecting at least 500 pieces of property.

Defense attorney Will Kautz said Newberry and Harnice haven't committed any crimes, and he is "shocked" that they were indicted.
