Kevin Sweat has pleaded not guilty to a charge of first-degree murder in the July 2011 death of his girlfriend.

Kevin Sweat entered the plea Wednesday morning in Okfuskee County court in Okemah.

In May, a judge ordered Sweat to stand trial for the slaying of 23-year-old Ashley Taylor. Investigators allege fragmented human bones found on the property of Sweat's father were consistent with Taylor but not an exact match.

This arraignment has been postponed twice, once in June and again in July.

Sweat also is accused of fatally shooting 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker, who were found after they went for a walk near Weleetka.

His preliminary hearing in that case is set for November 5, 2012.
