NEWARK, N.J. — The man charged in a northern New Jersey home invasion and beating that were captured on a nanny cam has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder, robbery, burglary and child endangerment.

Forty-two-year-old Shawn Custis was held Tuesday on $750,000 bail. He was arrested Friday in Manhattan.
