CALAVERAS COUNTY—

Isaiah Fowler’s attorneys entered a denial of allegation plea for the 12-year-old accused of murdering his 8-year-old sister, Leila, Wednesday afternoon.

The boy will be back in court in July for trial. His attorneys noted that they have over 1,000 hours of police work to look through.

A denial of allegation plea is equivalent to a not guilty plea, only for minors.

Isaiah remains in custody. His attorneys did not petition to get him out of custody at this time, as his home situation is in question. Isaiah’s family was in the process of moving when the incident took place.
