POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

A Poplar Bluff, Missouri man appeared for his arraignment on Tuesday, April 19 in connection with the hit and run death of a 13-year-old girl.

Randel C. Sparks pleaded not guilty to all counts during his arraignment.

He was charged with leaving the scene of a motor vehicle accident and tampering with physical evidence in a felony prosecution.

Sparks' trial was set for May 3 at 9 a.m.

Back on December 9, 2015, 13-year-old Heavenly Hafford died after she was hit by two vehicles at the intersection of Highway PP and Maud Street.

Police said Hafford was hit by a Volkswagon Beetle first and then a Ford F-150. They said both vehicles left the scene.

The Beetle was later found at a storage unit business.

Sparks, the owner of the Beetle, was arrested.
