Accused serial killer enters his plea

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Alleged serial killer Jeffery Lee Guillory has pleaded innocent to a second-degree murder charge in the 2002 strangulation of a 46-year-old Baton Rouge woman.

Guillory appeared Wednesday before state District Judge Tony Marabella, wearing shackles and a light blue prison jumpsuit.

He is serving a 50-year-old prison term at Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, following his 2007 conviction for the attempted second-degree murder of a woman in Lafayette.

His plea was in the death of 46-year-old Renee Newman, whose body was found in landscaping behind the old Maison Blanche/Goudchaux's department store building. Authorities have said Guillory's DNA was matched to evidence found at the crime scene.

If convicted in Newman's death, he faces an automatic life sentence.

He's also a suspect in the deaths of two other women in Baton Rouge between 1999 and 2002.
