    A Canadian man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he and another man killed two Nashua, New Hampshire, women 27 years ago.

    Police say 48-year-old Anthony Barnaby and 54-year-old David Caplin stabbed Brenda Warner and Charlene Ranstrom to death in October 1988 in their Nashua apartment.

    Three juries failed to convict or acquit Barnaby, the last time in 1990. First-degree murder charges against Caplin were dropped after courts threw out much of the evidence. Both men returned to Canada.

    They were ordered extradited in April after police said new DNA evidence and witnesses warranted another trial.

    The Nashua Telegraph reports
    that Barnaby pleaded not guilty at arraignment Tuesday.

    Barnaby and Caplin are being held without bail.
