Myron Douglas Phillips, of Katy, pleaded not guilty Friday morning to killing a Burleson County father and son.

Phillips is charged with two counts of capital murder and two counts of aggravated kidnapping.

On April 23, officials say Phillips fatally shot David Weichert Senior and D.J. Weichert outside of their home. Phillips then eluded authorities for 12 hours before surrendering peacefully.

The trial is tentatively set for the week of April 21, 2009 in Burleson County. Prosecutors tell News 3 at this time they will be seeking the death penalty.
