LOS ANGLES (AP) - Three men charged in the stabbing death of a woman taking pictures on Hollywood's crowded "Walk of Fame" have entered not guilty pleas in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Bailiffs said they had trouble getting alleged stabber Dustin James Kinnear to court because he was uncooperative. The 26-year-old Kinnear, a hulking man with long red hair, was calm in court wearing a yellow jail shirt indicating psychological problems.
He and two co-defendants, all described as panhandlers, were ordered to return for a preliminary hearing July 3.
Kinnear is charged with murder in the stabbing of 23-year-old Christina Calderon after she refused a demand that she pay him $1 for taking a picture.
A co-defendant, 33-year-old Jason Joel Wolstone, was charged with assault and 34-year-old Brian Joseph Widdows with being an accessory.
