ROSEBURG, Ore. - A man accused of beating a 2-year-old child to death pleaded not guilty Monday.

Mark Vanderhoof, 50, was charged with murder back in January for the death of Dennis Young.

Even though he entered a plea, his trial date has not been set. The court will hold a status hearing in August.

Vanderhoof was watching the 2-year-old when he claimed the boy fell off a deck.

He was later arrested after doctors found the boy's wounds suspicious.
