OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma man charged in the murders of three people had his day in court Tuesday.

Kevin Sweat pleaded not guilty in the death of his former girlfriend, Ashley Taylor.

Evidence of her remains was found in a burn pile on Sweat’s father’s property.

Sweat is also accused of gunning down two Weleetka girls, 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker and 13-year-old Taylor Paschal-Placker, along a dirt road back in 2008.

He has yet to go to trial for their murders.
