Murder Suspect Pleads Not Guilty

A Smith County murder suspect pleads not guilty.

Edgardo Sanchez, 38, was arraigned in court today, and his family was there with him.

The Mexican national is accused in the November killing of Alberto Flores III, 19, in northern Smith County.

Investigators say the victim refused to sell Sanchez a medallion he was wearing around his neck, so Sanchez shot flores in the back. While searching the Sanchez home last December, investigators say they found counterfeit cash, drugs, and an automatic rifle.
