Suspect in missing 10-year-old Iowa girl’s death pleads not guilty
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa man charged in the killing of a 10-year-old girl who was missing for nine months before her remains were found in a DeWitt pond has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and kidnapping.
Henry Dinkins pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Scott County District Court. He’s accused of kidnapping Breasia Terrell from a Davenport apartment complex in July, fatally shooting her and hiding her body in rural eastern Iowa.
Breasia was the half-sister of Dinkins’ son, and investigators say both children were staying the night with him at the apartment where he was living with a girlfriend.
