A man accused of killing a mother and daughter back in 1975 is set to enter a plea next month.

Jerry Nemnich was in court Wednesday morning where he is facing multiple felony charges including two counts of first degree murder.

Authorities say DNA evidence links the 64-year-old to the decades old murders of 24–year–old Linda Benson and her 5–year–old daughter Kelly.

The two were found dead in the Chateau apartments off of N. 21st Street.

Nemnich is expected to plead not guilty on Nov. 3 at which point a trial date will be set.
