Not Guilty Plea, Again, In Missing U Of I Scholar Case 

(Urbana, IL)  —  The suspect in the disappearance of a University of Illinois scholar is once again pleading not guilty.  Brendt Christensen yesterday pleaded not guilty to a new set of kidnapping charges.  Investigators say he lured Yingying Zhang into his car on the U-of-I campus last month.  Police think Zhang is dead, but Christensen is only charged with her kidnapping.  The new charges come from a grand jury indictment earlier this month.  Christensen’s trial is tentatively set for September.
