DES MOINES, Iowa — The 19-year-old accused of killing a 97-year-old man entered his pleas of not guilty to a variety of charges in court Wednesday.

Ngor Makuey of Des Moines is charged with first degree murder in Rupert “Andy” Anderson’s death. Police found Andy and his wife Harriet beaten inside their home at 4400 East 46th Street in early July. Andy died at the hospital but Harriet survived.

Makuey also faces charges of attempted murder, 1st degree robbery, and 1st degree burglary.

A Polk County Judge told the Makuey that his bond was pretty high and he would probably not be able to be released from jail.  A pre-trial  hearing was set for September 18th. His first degree murder jury trial is scheduled for October 15th at the Polk County Courthouse.
