Bullitt County man pleads not guilty in slaying

SHEPHERDSVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky man has pleaded not guilty to murder and kidnapping charges in the death of his niece.

The Courier-Journal reports 55-year-old Stanley Dishon entered the plea Thursday in Bullitt County Circuit Court. Dishon was charged this month in the death of 17-year-old Jessica Dishon, whose body was found in central Kentucky 2 ½ weeks after she disappeared from her driveway in 1999.

Charges against a neighbor ended in a mistrial in 2003, and the case remained unsolved.

The judge set bond at $500,000 and scheduled the trial for next September.
