David Marmolejo pleaded not guilty in the killing of his mother Gloria Marmolejo in court today. His Uncle Mark Huerta also attended the hearing.
If you remember, in July Gloria was reported missing by her family. Just days later, her mutilated body was found in the Santa Teresa desert. Then came the news that her son David had been arrested and charged with her murder. Investigators later said he and his Mom had argued about his girlfriend who was also his step sister.
The judge issued a gag order, prohibiting relatives, witnesses and lawyers from talking to the media.
The trial is set for March of next year.
