A man accused of killing his own stepson pleads not guilty in court Monday morning.
Brandon Moore is facing first degree murder charges in the death of Logan Acord.
Officials say Moore beat the child to death just two days before he would have turned two years old.
Moore is out on bond living in Palisade with his grand parents. He is wearing a GPS tracking device and is not allowed contact with his wife or the young son they share.
Moore will be back in court in February. If convicted Moore faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.
