Charlie Sheen Pleads Not Guilty of Domestic Violence

Charlie Sheen will be returning to work on CBS' Two and a Half Men this week, after appearing in court on Monday and entering a not-guilty plea in his domestic violence case.

"Charlie is looking forward to going back to work for the final four episodes of Two and Half Men," the show's executive producer, Mark Burg, said. "He's also looking forward to clearing his name, putting all of this behind him and spending time with his kids during his hiatus."

The charges against Sheen stemmed from a Christmas morning altercation with his wife, Brooke Mueller, in Aspen. The two got into a heated argument after attending a party, and Mueller alleged that the actor pulled a knife on her, grabbed her by the throat and threatened to kill her. Sheen was later charged with felony menacing and two misdemeanors for assault and criminal mischief.

Since the incident, Sheen and Mueller have both entered rehab and continue to be counseled separately. The couple's twin boys are currently in the care of their mother.

A three-day trial is set for Sheen, beginning on July 21, but a plea deal is expected. His next hearing date is April 19.
