The man arrested last week in the killings of a New Hampshire couple has pleaded not guilty in court paperwork filed by his attorneys.

Logan Clegg, 26, was arrested on separate charges at a library in South Burlington, Vermont, last week. Authorities said he was set to fly to Germany days later; he was later charged in the deaths of Stephen and Djeswende Reid.

Clegg waived his right to an extradition hearing in Vermont earlier this week, allowing his transfer to New Hampshire to face the two counts of second-degree murder, New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella and Concord Police Chief Bradley Osgood said.

He had been slated for arraignment in Merrimack Superior Court at 1 p.m. Wednesday but waived his hearing.

A court order says he is in jail and reserves the right to request a bail hearing at a later date.

The Reids were found shot to death in a wooded area in Concord on April 21, not far from the apartment complex where they lived.

Prosecutors have charged 26-year-old Logan Clegg with murder in the April deaths of a Concord couple.

Authorities searched for months for the Reids' killer or killers, announcing they were searching for a male "person of interest" in the case. Clegg, who was also wanted as a fugitive in the state of Utah, was taken into custody in Vermont last week.

Clegg is accused of shooting the couple multiple times.
