Clark County Couple Pleads Not Guilty to Murder Charges


Patrick and Joy Watkins were arraigned Wednesday in Clark County.

They're accused of murdering ten-year old Michaela Watkins back in March 2007. The Watkins pleaded not guilty to the murder charges and their trial is set to begin in September.

The two told 27 NEWSFIRST Michaela died after a series of accidents.
But investigators say a much different picture was painted, saying she was found badly beaten and burned.

According to an autopsy, Michaela had been dead at least 5 hours before help was called for.
