DENVER (AP) - A suspect in the shooting death of Denver Broncos cornerback Darrent Williams has pleaded not guilty to an unrelated charge of having a homemade knife in his jail cell.

Willie D. Clark was in Denver County Court Tuesday for a preliminary hearing on a charge of introducing contraband.

Authorities say they found a plastic spoon sharpened into a weapon in Clark's cell on Dec. 8. Clark's attorney says Clark had been in the cell only three days when the knife was found and suggested the previous occupant made it.

Clark is charged with murder in the Jan. 1, 2007, slaying of Williams. A judge entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf.

He also faces a murder charge in the unrelated shooting death of a Denver woman in December 2006.
