RIPLEY COUNTY, MO (KFVS) - A third suspect in a Ripley County murder case says he's innocent.

Public records show David Youngblood pleaded not guilty Monday in the deaths of Ed Atkinson and Bonnie Chase.

Investigators found the bodies inside a burned home in Doniphan last year.

Autopsy results show both died of gunshot wounds.

His wife, Melissa Youngblood, and daughter, Chantale, have also pleaded not guilty.

Chantale's boyfriend Keith Boyles will soon be in court to face similar charges.
