VALE, Ore. -- An eastern Oregon couple pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and other charges in the shooting of their grandchild's father.

The Ontario Argus Observer reports that 61-year-old Lester Reger and 50-year-old Erlene Reger entered their pleas Wednesday in separate Malheur County courtrooms.

A third defendant, John Martin Fritz Jr., had his plea hearing delayed for two weeks.

District Attorney Dan Norris said 19-year-old Ramon Fry was shot and wounded after returning the child to the couple's Ontario home following a visitation.

He said there had been a custody dispute involving the child.
