LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) - A 30-year-old Wyoming man has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the death of his step-grandmother.

Trevor Sanford is charged with killing 75-year-old Marilyn “Kay” Dlugosh in March. His trial is set to start on Jan. 10.

Prosecutors say Dlougosh’s body was found on March 29.

KTWO-AM reports (bit.ly/2uW1SRh) Dlugosh’s son told Albany County investigators that Sanford had been living with his mother since March 23, when he was released from jail. Sanford had been jailed after leading officers on a pursuit in January.

A detective testified during Sanford’s preliminary hearing in June that other inmates had heard Sanford threatening to kill Dlugosh for not taking his phone calls from jail.

Defense attorney Randy Hiller argued there was no evidence to absolutely put Sanford at the scene of the crime.
