SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) - A Springdale man has pleaded not guilty to charges in the stabbing death of a woman in Tontitown.

Thirty-four-year-old Lewis Hedges Jr. entered the plea during arraignment Wednesday on a charge of being an accomplice to capital murder in the May stabbing death of Dawn Leann Frazier.

Investigators say Hedges told 19-year-old Brock Atkins to stab Frazier. Atkins says Hedges held a gun to his head and threatened to kill him if he didn’t stab the woman because he believed she was a “snitch” and had stolen drugs from him.
