A Waterloo man accused of murdering his girlfriend in Linn County is pleading not guilty. 

Thirty-six-year-old Shaun Hogan faces first degree murder for the death of 29-year-old Crystal Gaffney. 

Police found her body on a gravel road near Walker on July 9. 

On the the same day, authorities issued an Amber Alert for Gaffney's three children, believed to be with Hogan. 

All three children returned safely shortly after the alert was sent out. 

If convicted on the charge of murder, Hogan would face a mandatory sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.
