OKEMAH, Okla. - The man accused of gunning down two young girls on a rural Weleetka road in 2008 and then killing his fiancee in 2011 was in court Wednesday.
Kevin Sweat pleaded not guilty during his arraignment for the murder of his fiancee, 23-year-old Ashley Taylor.
Fragmented human bones found smoldering on Sweat's father's property are believed to be those of Taylor but are not an exact match.
Sweat is scheduled to stand trial Oct. 22, but his attorney says he'll ask for a delay because of a scheduling conflict.
Sweat is also charged with the murders of 13-year-old Taylor Placker and 11-year-old Skyla Whitaker.
Authorities linked Sweat to their deaths during the investigation into Taylor's murder.
His preliminary hearing in that case is Nov. 5.
