Charles City teen pleads not guilty to murdering toddler

CHARLES CITY (KWWL) - A Charles City teenager pleaded not guilty to murder Monday afternoon.

14-year-old Edgar Concepcion, Jr. was arraigned in Floyd County District Court.  He's accused of sexually abusing and murdering 3-year-old Krystal Banes in July 2009.

In December, a judge ruled that the teen will be tried as an adult.  If convicted, Concepcion will be sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
