The Callaway County man charged with killing 3 people and injuring 1 has pleaded not guilty.

Josh Maylee appeared in court Monday morning with his attorneys. They filed a written waiver of formal arraignment, which means the judge did not formally read him his charges.

From here, Maylee TMs case will be placed on the trial setting docket. Sometime later this month, President Circuit Court Judge Gary Oxenhandler will assign a trial judge in the case and set a new court date.

Maylee is charged with killing Eugene and Jackie Pinet and Jeffrey Werdehausen in October 2010. He TMs also charged with shooting Werdehausen TMs wife, Gina, who survived.

In April, a judge found probable cause to continue the case against Maylee.

Law enforcement officers testified and described the gruesome murder scene to the judge, while family members of the victims shed tears in the courtroom.
