A man charged with murder made his first court appearance on Monday morning.
Anthony Brown entered a not guilty plea to first degree murder charges in Clark County.
Police say he stabbed Kim Hooten to death last week. Her body was found in the middle of a street in Winchester.
Family members say she had been stabbed multiple times, including in the neck, head and chest.
Brown was arrested shortly after her death at a near-by apartment. Police say he had some items that belonged to Hooten with him at the time of his arrest.
Brown is due back in court later this month.
