Arson suspect Robert Boyce appeared in Washington County Court today for formal arraignment.

Boyce appeared with his attorney, Jim Conatser, to plead “not guilty” to charges of two counts of second degree arson, manufacturing a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine), conspiracy to manufacture a controlled dangerous substance (methamphetamine), unlawfully concealing hazardous waste, false claim for insurance and second degree conspiracy to commit arson.

A date of Aug. 3 was set for a jury docket in anticipation of a jury trial.

Boyce was previously bound over on all charges stemming from the alleged 2009 arson of a downtown Bartlesville building at the continuation of his preliminary hearing in late April.

The charges stem from a fire that destroyed the historic former May Brothers building in downtown Bartlesville in August 2009.

Boyce remains in the Washington County Jail on $500,000 bond.
