A Kingsport man charged with killing his wife pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder Monday in criminal court in Blountville.

Police say he strangled his wife, Lakeesha, and then called 911 to report it at their home in the Rock Springs community.

He remains in jail on a $400,000 bond and is due back in court August 14 when a trial date could be set.
