BOULDER, Colo. – The Boulder man accused of killing his ex-girlfriend and scattering her dismembered body across the U.S. pleaded not guilty to the crimes Friday.

Adam Densmore, 32, faces first-degree murder, tampering with a deceased human body, abuse of a corpse and tampering with evidence charges.

He’s accused of killing 25-year-old Ashley Mead earlier this year in Boulder, then scattering Mead’s body as he drove to his parents’ house in Louisiana, then up to Oklahoma, where he was caught and found with his and Mead’s year-old daughter.

Densmore is scheduled for a three-day motions hearing beginning Feb. 5, and a jury trial is scheduled to begin April 9. The trial is scheduled to last three weeks.
