The Arbuckle man accused of killing two women who lived on his almond orchard property says he's not guilty of the murders.
49 year old Martin Ehrke was accused of the murder of 39 year old Kimberly Taylor and 25 year old Jessica Mazak, whose bodies were found in a large freezer and in a pond on the property in late January. All three lived together on the orchard property, where investigators say they found drugs, and a cannabis growing operation.
The coroner said the cause of death for both women was blunt force trauma.
Ehrke pleaded not guilty in Colusa County Superior Court Wednesday morning.
He remains in custody with no bail, and will be returning to court on April 4th.
