Joseph Nickerson pleaded not guilty at the hearing yesterday in Cape Girardeau. A hearing for Jacob Aubuchon was continued to January ninth. The third suspect, Andrew Kohl, has requested a change of judge.

All three are members of Pi Kappa Alpha.

The students were charged November 22nd with misdemeanor theft, and Nickerson with trespassing.
