ROCHESTER, Minn. – The first of three accused killers is pleading not guilty.

Malcolm Woods

Arndt was killed in his home at a Rochester trailer park on September 10. Authorities say Parsons, Woods, and Klindworth-Woods are related and cooperated in killing Arndt because they believed he had something to do with a serious medical problem with one of their grandparents.

A trial has not been scheduled for Parsons. The other two defendants have not yet entered pleas.
