Murder suspect enters not guilty plea



A man charged in a highly publicized stabbing in Janesville May 4th pleads not guilty to all charges in Rock County Court.  A trial already has been ordered in the case of 28-year old Clayton J. Courtney, who is charged with attempted first-degree intentional homicide.  Courtney is also charged with obstructing an officer and four domestic-abuse charges, first-degree recklessly endangering safety, attempted arson, criminal damage to property and disorderly conduct while armed.  Courtney is accused of stabbing Michael Clark at a house the two shared.  During the fight, Courtney allegedly said he had already killed three people.  Janesville police say Courtney is a suspect in a homicide believed to have occurred the same night as the stabbing.  The body of 21-year-old Britney Cross, an acquaintance of Courtney's, was found behind a vacant building near the Rock River the morning of May 5.
