A Sand Springs man accused of killing his mother and kidnapping his son pleaded not guilty Wednesday .

Robert Connor III is in the Osage County jail after being extradited from Denton, Texas Tuesday.

Connor is charged with first degree murder in the death of his 62-year-old mother, Debi Connor. He's also charged with kidnapping his 6-year-old son from her rural Sand Springs home on August 20.

The kidnapping prompted a statewide Amber Alert.

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Connor shot his mother, Debi, in the head while one of his sons watched through a window.
