OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - A judge has denied bond for a man charged in the 1997 kidnapping and killing of an Oklahoma woman.

William Reece was extradited to Oklahoma this week from Texas, where he recently led authorities to the remains of two women who vanished in 1997. In Oklahoma, Reece is charged with first-degree murder and kidnapping for the death of 19-year-old Tiffany Johnston, who was abducted from a Bethany car wash in 1997.

Reece pleaded not guilty to the charges Tuesday and another court hearing was set for Thursday. Reece, who is serving a 60-year prison sentence in Texas for kidnapping, wasn’t charged in Johnston’s death until last year.

He led Texas authorities this spring to the remains of 17-year-old Jessica Cain and 20-year-old Kelli Cox.
