GLENS FALLS - Shackled and handcuffed, 21-year old Bryan Redden pleaded not guilty Friday night to murder charges involving the stabbing deaths of his former girlfriend and her 4-year old daughter.

According to Glens Falls Police, Redden was recently in a relationship with Riley, 33, although at this point, no one is talking about why the homeless man allegedly stabbed the woman to death or why he allegedly stabbed and killed little Lilly Frasier.

The victims' bodies were discovered around 10:30 AM Friday morning by Riley's mother, who stopped by her daughter's house at 148 South Street after not hearing from her.

Redden faces three felony charges; one for murder first degree, and two more counts of murder second degree. It was Redden's Public Defender Marcy Flores who entered a not guilty plea on his behalf before Glens Falls City Court Judge Nikki Moreschi.

"Any time a child dies it's a tragedy," said Acting Warren County District Attorney Jason Carusone.

Carusone said he intends to present the case to a grand jury Tuesday morning.

Redden was being held in the Warren County Jail Friday night without bail.
