ATLANTA, Ga (AP) — A man accused of killing two 17-year-olds behind an Atlanta-area supermarket has pleaded not guilty.

News outlets report 20-year-old Jeffrey Hazelwood entered his plea in a Fulton County court Thursday, more than a week after he was indicted on 15 counts, including charges of murder, aggravated assault and aggravated sexual battery.

Prosecutors say Hazelwood fatally shot Carter Davis and Natalie Henderson Aug. 1 in Roswell. A medical examiner’s report says Henderson was found naked in a “sexually suggestive position,” while Davis was wearing only shorts with his arms outstretched on each side.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Hazelwood was in court for three minutes, during which time he was calm and still, unlike the shaking man who appeared in court in the days after his August arrest.
