Lee County-  The man charged with one of the most brutal murders in Lee County history entered a plea in court.  Thirty year old Corrie Denby, facing a capital murder trial, was arraigned Tuesday morning. 

Denby is charged with the November 2006 murder of retired realtor Pat Murphy. In court this morning, the judge read the charges against Denby and asked him how he pleaded. Denby pleaded not guilty. That sets the stage for a lengthy legal battle in which the state will seek the death penalty.

Prosecutors say 79 year old Pat Murphy was tortured, sexually battered, and stabbed in the throat four times.

His body was found in the floor of his home in Glendale Subdivision December 6th. Denby's attorney says he will file a motion challenging the grand jury that indicted Denby.

No trial date has yet been set.
