CLEVELAND (AP) - A Cleveland man facing a possible death sentence has pleaded not guilty in the 1984 slaying of 14-year-old girl.
Fifty-eight-year-old Hernandez Warren entered the plea Monday to an updated indictment charging him with aggravated murder, rape and kidnapping. He was jailed without bond.
The new indictment including death-penalty specifications was returned last week.
Investigators say DNA evidence linked Warren to the killing of Gloria Pointer. She went missing while walking to school in Cleveland.
Authorities say Warren lived in the same neighborhood as the girl.
