A Sikeston murder suspect pleads not guilty to murder and wants a new judge.  DPS was called to the 800-block of William Street June 30th in reference to a subject that had been shot.  19-year-old DeAngelo Williams of Sikeston was rushed to a Cape hospital with multiple wounds and died four hours later.  The motive remains unclear.  29-year-old Kevin King was arrested the next day in Cape.  He is charged with 1st-degree murder and armed criminal action.  King is jailed on a 150-thousand-dollar cash only bond.  He pleaded not guilty Wednesday before Judge David Dolan and requested a change of judge.  A new hearing is pending a judge assignment.
