Not Guilty Plea Entered For Ministry Student

Not Guilty Plea Entered For Ministry Student

CREATED Feb 18, 2014

JACKSON, Tenn. (AP) - A Tennessee judge has entered a not guilty plea for a ministry student accused of killing his fiancee and ordered him held without bond.

Jackson City Judge Blake Anderson set a preliminary hearing for February 27 for 21-year-old Charlie Pittman, a senior at Union University in Jackson. Pittman is charged with first-degree murder in the death February 11 of Olivia Greenlee.

Police say Pittman tried to make Greenlee's death appear to be suicide. Her body was found inside her car on campus the morning of February 12.

The Jackson Sun said the arrest affidavit says investigators asked Pittman for clothes he had on during dinner with Greenlee but they didn't match video evidence. The affidavit says Pittman then gave police laundered, bleached clothing that the video showed he was wearing.
