TOPEKA, Kan. (AP)-- A Shawnee County judge has entered not guilty pleas for a Topeka man charged with killing a woman in November.
The Topeka Capital-Journal reports 30-year-old Andrew Charles Redick is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 39-year-old Lena Ann Keithley, who was found dead in a motel on Nov. 15.
The Shawnee County coroner said Keithley died from ``asphyxia due to strangulation,'' but said he couldn't rule out suffocation as a contributing factor.
Redick was bound over on the charges last week. A judge entered the not guilty pleas for him during a hearing Monday.
Redick is jailed in Shawnee County on $1 million bond. His trial is scheduled to begin Aug. 11.
