Tulsa Judge Enters Not Guilty Plea for Teen Accused in Mother's Death

Posted: Updated:

A Tulsa judge entered a not-guilty plea on behalf of a teenager charged with the death of his mother.

Henry Laird is accused in last month's death of 56-year-old Linda Laird. A court filing says Laird had been beaten to death with a "blunt instrument."

At Friday's hearing, the judge scheduled a March 14 preliminary hearing for the 17-year-old boy, who is being held without bond.

Laird was charged after a relative reportedly found his mother inside the house after she was hit on the head with the end of a shotgun. 20-year-old Josiah Sklar is also charged in her death. His arrest report cites that he was present when Laird beat his mother.
