A local man who’s charged in connection with the death of a three year old child has pleaded not guilty to the charges files against him. Charles Richard Kane was in court on Friday and Kane pleaded not guilty to a first degree murder count. Kane is accused of killing Elijah Joseph Ulbrich in February, 2010. Authorities believe Kane beat the toddler into a coma; Ulbrich died less than a month later. Kane will be back in court for a status conference hearing in about five weeks.
