Wright enters not-guilty pleas, trial set
Jena Marie Wright, the Prairie City woman charged in the death of 4-year-old Jordyn Arndt as a result of injuries sustained from Wright’s dog while she was babysitting the girl, entered not-guilty pleas on four charges she faces Monday.
Wright appeared with public defender Steve Addington to enter her pleas on charges of child endangerment resulting in death, a Class B felony; neglect or abandonment of a dependent person, a Class C felony; and misdemeanor charges of assault on a peace officer resulting in injury and interference with official acts. She also waiver her right to a speedy trial in the case.
Jasper County District Court Judge Randy Hefner accepted the pleas. He set Oct. 2 as the beginning date for the trial. A pre-trial conference was slated for July 22.
