Arraignment day for a suspected child killer

(Wooster) - An Ohio man has pleaded not guilty in the rape and strangulation of a 9-year-old girl who was found dead in a trash bin at the trailer park where they were neighbors.

A court-appointed attorney entered the pleas Thursday for Jerrod Metsker.

Authorities say he was the last person seen with 9-year-old Reann Murphy at their trailer park in Smithville, southwest of Akron.

A caller identifying himself as Metsker reported the girl missing in a 911 call.
