An American pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to the charge of kidnapping resulting in death of a Chinese scholar.

This has been the first time Brendt Christensen appeared in court after a federal grand jury returned a superseding indictment on Oct. 3 against the 28-year-old Cheap Nike Air Vapormax Flyknit 2018 Grey , accusing him of kidnapping resulting in the death of Zhang Yingying, a visiting Chinese scholar at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign (UIUC).

U.S. Magistrate Judge Eric Long read the main part of the superseding indictment, and Christensen replied that he fully understood the three counts of charges, namely kidnapping resulting in death and two counts of making false statements to FBI agents.
