SINTON, Texas (AP) - A South Texas man accused in a 2012 park attack that left a woman dead and her girlfriend hurt has pleaded not guilty to capital murder.

The Corpus Christi Caller-Times (https://bit.ly/1lZxGvO ) reports David Malcom Strickland faces trial Oct. 27 in Sinton.

Strickland, who waived arraignment on Thursday, has been held without bond since his June arrest in Helotes (hel-OH’-tis), near San Antonio.

Investigators say two women were sexually assaulted and shot at a park in Portland, near Corpus Christi. Authorities say 19-year-old Mollie Olgin of Ingleside died. Her 18-year-old girlfriend was critically hurt but survived.

Strickland also faces felony charges of kidnapping, aggravated sexual assault and robbery. His wife, Laura, has been charged with evidence tampering in the case. She’s free on bond.
