CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - A Chambersburg man charged with two counts of criminal homicide was scheduled for the July trial term after his arraignment Wednesday in Franklin County Court.
"I will enter on the record ... a plea of not guilty on your behalf," Judge Richard J. Walsh told Michael Brandon Singley at the end of the 20-minute court appearance.
Dressed in an orange prison uniform, Singley sat between Public Defender Robert J. Trambley and co-counsel Michael J. Toms. He remained handcuffed except when signing court documents.
Singley, 22, of 1125 E. Brandon Ave., could have been arraigned informally outside a courtroom by signing some documents, but he asked to be arraigned formally before a judge, according to Assistant District Attorney Jill McCracken.
