Murder Suspect Of 6 Year Old Isabel Celis Pleads Not Guilty

Chris Magnus the Chief of the Tucson Police Department called a press conference to give another update on the case of 6 year old Isabel Celis and 13-year-old Maribel Gonzalez.  Arizona Central reports:

The man accused of killing two Tucson girls and burying their bodies in the desert pleaded not guilty Monday afternoon in Pima County Superior Court.

Monday's arraignment marked Christopher Clements' first court appearance since law enforcement announced he had been indicted on 22 charges related to the killings of 6-year-old Isabel Celis and 13-year-old Maribel Gonzalez in a Sept. 15 press conference. Police records indicate there may be additional victims.

The Arizona Daily Star reported that both girls' families were in the courtroom for the hearing. Clements still had a lingering black eye from a recent fight in a Maricopa County jail.

The 36-year-old was recently transferred to Pima County from Maricopa, where he had been held on unrelated charges of burglary and fraud since 2017. 

We all hope that this case is brought to justice soon. We respect the efforts of Chief Magnus and the Tucson Police Department for all of their hard work while bringing this tragedy to an end. View the recent press conference below.
