A 22-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting and killing a Las Vegas mother and daughter and nearly killing their husband and father with a hammer has pleaded not guilty.
Bryan Devonte Clay Jr. appeared in court Wednesday morning to enter the plea on 10 felony charges, including murder, attempted murder, sexual assault, kidnapping, robbery and burglary.
His trial is set for June 24, 2013. Prosecutors have said they intend to seek the death penalty.
Clay is accused in the April 15 attacks on Ignacia “Yadira” Martinez, 10-year-old Karla Martinez and Arturo Martinez. Two other Martinez children were spared.
Clay also is accused of trying to rape a woman hours before the home invasion.
Authorities say he told detectives he drank alcohol, took Ecstasy and smoked PCP, and didn’t remember the attacks.
