MT. VERNON, IL (KFVS) - A man accused in the death of a 15-year-old boy pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday.

Marventi Palmer faces first degree murder charges in the death of Deon Figgins.

He's accused of shooting and killing Figgins who was found on the road next to his bicycle in August of 2010.

He waived his formal arraignment and a right to a speedy trial, according to Jefferson County State's Attorney Doug Hoffman.

Palmer is currently serving 20 years in prison for unrelated drug and weapons charges.

A pre-trial hearing is set for June 17 at 9:30 a.m.
