A Virginia man accused of fatally shooting a college student near Phoenix more than 37 years ago has pleaded not guilty.
Lawyers for 54-year-old Edward Meinhold say their client entered his plea Friday.
Meinhold, of Bristol, was extradited to Arizona on Sept. 3 and his bond was set the next day at $500,000.
Schmidt was found slumped over in her car in Glendale and was later pronounced dead.
Investigators say they identified Meinhold as the suspect after they recently reviewed crime-scene evidence and interviewed him.
Meinhold wasn't contacted by police until this year.
Attorneys for Meinhold say he's innocent and has no connection to the murder case.
