Shawn Shipp, arrested May 3 after police said he ran over a 91-year-old Capitol Hill woman, pleaded not guilty to vehicular homicide and driving with a suspended license Thursday morning in King County Superior Court.

Shipp was backing his pickup into a parking space near Harvard Avenue East and East Thomas Street when he struck Marie Fite and drove over her, according to police and prosecutors. Shipp, 34, had a blood-alcohol level of 0.16, twice the legal limit when he was tested after the crash, police said.
