John Skelton, the Morenci father of three missing children, has turned down another court appearance.

Wednesday, Skelton waived his right to an arraignment. He signed the papers from his jail cell, entering a plea of not guilty.

Skelton remains behind bars on a $30 million bond charged with parental kidnapping.

Skelton has maintained that he did not know the whereabouts of his three sons, only that he gave them to an organization which he refuses to identify.

Prosecuting attorney Jonathon Poer says it appears to be a straight forward case.  Defense attorney John Glaser declined to comment to WWJ’s Ron Dewey.

Skelton’s next court date for a pre-trial hearing is February 9th.
