DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — One of the men accused in the robbery slaying of a Davenport man has pleaded not guilty.

Scott County District Court records show 19-year-old Darrell Williams Jr., of East Moline, Illinois, entered written pleas Thursday to charges of first-degree murder, burglary and conspiracy. His trial is scheduled to begin July 8.

Prosecutors say Williams participated in the killing of 20-year-old Brady Tumlinson and the wounding of his girlfriend at Tumlinson’s home on Sept. 22, 2017.

Two men have already been convicted in the death and were each sentenced to life in prison.
