The man charged in connection with a cold case murder entered a "not guilty" plea in Kanawha County Court.
Daniel Turner entered the plea on Friday morning. Earlier this year he had been indicted in the 1999 murder of Terry Clark, 41.
Authorities transported Turner to Charleston earlier this week from the Federal Correctional Institution in Memphis, where he was serving time for unrelated drug and gun charges.
Clark's naked body was discovered on May 28, along the side of Route 119 near Walton in Roane County.
Police believe she was killed in her Lewis Street apartment in Charleston.
His trial is set for July.
