Serial Killer Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

Compiled From Wire Services

As out-of-state homicide detectives began arriving here in hopes of solving a rash of grisly murders, suspected serial killer Glen Rogers pleaded not guilty Tuesday to charges arising from slayings in Louisiana and Florida and from trying to evade Kentucky police who captured him after a high-speed car chase.

During about six hours of police questioning, Rogers, 33, “denied that he had killed anyone, but the interview revealed that he knew some of these victims,” said Detective Floyd McIntosh of the Kentucky State Police.

Rogers is suspected in a seven-week, cross-country killing spree that began in Los Angeles and left four women dead in California, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida. He also has been linked to the murder of an elderly Ohio man, and Kentucky police are fielding “numerous calls” about unsolved slayings from police in other jurisdictions.
