BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - A judge has entered a not guilty plea for a man at his arraignment in federal court in the death of a 4-year-old boy whose charred remains were found on a central Michigan Indian reservation.
Anthony Bennett has been in custody on another charge since Carnel Chamberlain's remains were found June 28 at a home on the Saginaw Chippewa Indian reservation, about 70 miles north of Lansing. He was living with Carnel and the boy's mother.
A Nov. 7 grand jury indictment charges him with first-degree murder, assaulting a child, assault with a dangerous weapon, animal cruelty and witness tampering.
Bennett stood mute Tuesday at his appearance in Bay City federal court. He remains jailed, and his next court date is Nov. 27.
