Not-guilty plea in Indiana girl's slaying

A man accused of killing a 9-year-old Indiana girl with a brick and dismembering her body with a hacksaw made an initial appearance in a Fort Wayne, Indiana, court Wednesday.

Michael Plumadore, 39, faces one count each of murder, abuse of a corpse and moving a body from the scene of a crime in the killing of Aliahna Lemmon.

Plumadore pleaded not guilty at the hearing, said Robyn Niedzwiecki of the Allen County prosecutor's office. His next court hearing was set for January 18, and a public defender will be appointed to represent him.

    That's what criminals do, Plead not guilty on the recommendations of lawyers. You certainly can't make a plea deal by pleading (out) guilty.

    Start castrating these wastes of skin and maybe they'll think twice about harming kids. Then again they have no conscience so that probably wouldn't deter some of these maniacs.

    Not guilty by'reason' of insanity?
    That is what criminals also do on the advice of their lawyers. Hope this perp gets what he deserves.

    Most judges enter a plea of non-guilty in for a criminal until the criminal can contact legal counsel. He was likely advised to do this by the Court.

    It doesn't really matter what he pleads. There is significant evidence against him. He will at the least be locked away for a long time.
