49-year-old James Koepp pleads not guilty to three counts of first degree intentional homicide in Rock County Court Monday afternoon.


The charges carry three consecutive life sentences. Court Commissioner Charles Holznecht conducted the arraignment via telephone, since the video conferencing equipment wasn't connecting to Koepp at Columbia Correctional Institution in Portage. The same problem occurred during Koepp's scheduled arraignment last week, delaying the court case to Monday. Koepp is charged in the January 2007 murders of Danyetta Lentz and her two teenage children, Nicole and Scott.


He's currently serving a sentence on fleeing charges.
