A 17-year-old charged with first-degree murder has pleaded not guilty, according to online court records.

Charles William Curtis Thompson was charged with the October 2009 shooting death of John Versypt, a landlord who was checking up on one of his apartment buildings on Broadway. Police believe Thompson, who came to Iowa City from Holland, Mich., in the summer of 2008, planned to rob Versypt.

Thompson and his attorney entered the not-guilty plea after a written arraignment was filed on Wednesday.
