LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – The suspect arrested in the fatal shooting of three people found at a Louisville home has pleaded not guilty.

The Courier-Journal reports (cjky.it/1R63hb4) 26-year-old George Slaughter of Louisville pleaded not guilty Monday in Jefferson District Court. Slaughter is charged with three counts of murder and tampering with physical evidence in connection with the killings.

Deputy Coroner Eddie Robinson says Louisville Metro Police found 35-year-old William Neal and 43-year-old Elizabeth Draper dead inside their home early Saturday.

Thirty-six-year-old Douglas Weber, of New Albany, Indiana, was also pronounced dead at the scene.

Police arrested Slaughter later that day. He is currently being held on bond. Online jail records do not list an attorney for Slaughter.

His next court appearance is Feb. 25.
