Ngabirano who has been in police custody, on Wednesday appeared before the Rukungiri Grade One Magistrate Christopher Tindebwa Adyeri.
Ngabirano pleaded not guilty to the charges and was remanded to Rukungiri central prison utill July 6, 2016.
The state said it was still carrying out investigations into the matter.
Ngabirano has since been pronounced mentally ill by Rukungiri Municipal principal medical officer Dr Emmanuel Musiimenta.
