CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE, N.J. (AP) - A man has denied killing a missing girl in southern New Jersey.

Thirty-three-year-old Charles Mosley pleaded not guilty during his arraignment Thursday to murder, aggravated sexual assault and related offenses stemming from the slaying of Nicole Angstadt.

The 15-year-old was reported missing on Dec. 1. Her body was found a couple weeks later in a crawl space of a vacant Lower Township home.

Defense attorney Ed Weinstock says he’ll argue that Mosley’s co-defendant, 23-year-old Derrick Powers, committed the killing. Powers is charged with first-degree murder, robbery and related offenses.

But prosecutors say they believe Mosely was involved in the slaying.



It’s unclear if Powers has an attorney who could comment on the charges.
