Greece, N.Y. - A man currently in prison on unrelated charges pleaded not guilty Monday to a 1991 murder case.
Edward Laraby, 59, is charged in the murder of Stephanie Kupchynsky, 27. She disappeared in July 1991. Her remains were found seven years later in rural Orleans County.
Greece Police said Laraby confessed to the crime, which led to the charges. In exchange for his confession, investigators said Laraby won't be buried on the grounds of the prison.
Laraby's trial is now scheduled for February. He's currently serving two life sentences at the Wende Correctional Facility outside Buffalo for sexual abuse and attempted murder charges.
Laraby's attorney said his client has Lou Gehrig's disease, and his condition is deteriorating rapidly.
In a press conference on Monday afternoon, authorities said Laraby indicated he knew where Kupchynsky's body was in 1992, but he wanted a deal with the Monroe County District Attorney's Office. However, prosecutors did not want to offer him a deal in the case at that time.
