COLUMBUS, Neb. (AP) _ The second of three suspects in a Columbus stabbing death has pleaded not guilty. 

26-year-old Quentin Critser entered his pleas this week. He's charged with first-degree murder and use of a weapon in the slaying of Steven Jorgensen at Jorgensen's Columbus home on May 18. Critser's trial is scheduled to begin Dec. 16.

Authorities say the three intended to rob the 51-year-old Jorgensen, but the robbery turned violent when Jorgensen resisted. 

The two other defendants, Eric Henry and Kimberly Henderson, both 31 and from Columbus, face the same charges.

Henry's pleaded not guilty and is scheduled to begin trial on Oct. 28. Henderson's attorney, Nathan Sohriakoff, said Thursday that he expects she'll plead not guilty at her arraignment on Sept. 19.
