Kentucky Teen Pleads Not Guilty in Multi-State Crime Spree

An 18-year-old Kentucky man pleaded not guilty Thursday in a two-week crime spree he allegedly went on with a 13-year-old girl, authorities said. Dalton Hayes was returned to Kentucky earlier Thursday and was being held on $250,000 cash bail pending a hearing next week on eight charges including burglary and second-degree rape. Hayes and the girl, whom NBC News isn't identifying because she's a minor, were reported missing Jan. 3 in Kentucky and were arrested Saturday night in Panama City, Florida.
