Not guilty plea entered for suspect
ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) — A man who gained Internet fame as “Kai the Hatchet-Wielding Hitchhiker” has pleaded not guilty through a lawyer to a murder charge.
Caleb McGillivary appeared Monday in a Union County jail courtroom. The 24-year-old is accused of killing lawyer Joseph Galfy, 73, whose body was found May 13 in his Clark home.
Wearing an oatmeal-colored T-shirt, McGillivary stood behind thick glass. He questioned Judge Brenda Coppola Cuba numerous times about his plea and bail.
Authorities say McGillivary and Galfy met in New York City. McGillvary stayed at Galfy’s home. He was arrested in Philadelphia days later.
