Judge enters not guilty plea for Ind. man accused of killing friend, stashing body in freezer

A judge has entered a not guilty plea on behalf of a central Indiana man charged with killing a homeless friend whose decomposing body was found in an unplugged freezer.

A Howard County judge also set a March trial date for 52-year-old Walter Logan of Kokomo. Logan was charged with murder Monday.

A court staffer says a public defender for Logan has yet to be appointed.

Court documents say Logan told investigators that he duct-taped 29-year-old Alex Shipp's nose and mouth and put his body in his basement freezer after he died. Kokomo police say investigators found Shipp's body Sunday, about a month after his mother saw him last.

Investigators in the city about 40 miles north of Indianapolis say the men fought after drinking, taking drugs and having sex.
