Man pleads not guilty to abducting, killing Navajo girl


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The man accused of kidnapping and killing an 11-year-old Navajo girl pleaded not guilty to murder, sexual abuse and other charges Tuesday in a case that sent shockwaves through the nation's largest American Indian reservation.

Tom Begaye's attorney entered the plea in federal court just over a month after authorities say the 27-year-old abducted fifth-grader Ashlynne Mike and her younger brother as they played along their school bus route near the edge of the Navajo Nation.
