A man who's accused of being responsible for the 1974 Windmill Park triple homicides in Fairmont pleaded not guilty in a Marion County courtroom Monday afternoon.

Eddie Jack Washington, 59, was arraigned on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of conspiracy to commit a felony. Each of those murder charges carries a life sentence and the conspiracy charge carries a one to 10 year sentence.
 
Washington was denied bond and his trial has already been continued to the June term of court.
 
Washington was arrested last month in Florida and was extradited back to our state.
 
His charges stem from the execution-style slayings of Guy Lester Phillips, 20; his wife, Wanda Jane Phillips, 19; and Billy Ray Cobb, 27.
