Not Guilty Plea, Again, In Missing U Of I Scholar Case
The suspect in the disappearance of a University of Illinois scholar is once again pleading not guilty. Brendt Christensen yesterday pleaded not guilty to a new set of kidnapping charges. Investigators say he lured Yingying Zhang into his car on the U-of-I campus last month. Police think Zhang is dead, but Christensen is only charged with her kidnapping. The new charges come from a grand jury indictment earlier this month. Christensen's trial is tentatively set for September.
