A former Dougherty County jailer pleaded not guilty to murder charges Friday, as he was arraigned on nine counts related to the death of his former girlfriend in 2008.

37-year-old Allen Robinson is charged with stabbing and killing Roshanda Dowell in the parking lot of an East Albany grocery store.

The D. A. filed notice that he will seek the death penalty against Robinson, and he hopes to bring the case to trial this year. 

"We'll probably have a final motions hearing within the next, at least September is the tentative date to have all of that done. Once the motions are resolved, the trial could be heard after sometime in September," said Dougherty D.A. Greg Edwards.

Robinson is being held without bond in the Dougherty County jail.
