Suspected mass killer Theodore R. Bundy, hand-cuffed and shackled, pleaded innocent yesterday to state automobile theft, burglary and forgery charges.
But authorities said they still did not have sufficient evidence to charge the Colorado fugitive with killing two Florida State University sorority members in Tallahassee Jan. 15, or the Feb. 9 disappearance of 12-year-old Kimberly Diane Leach of Lake City, Fla.
Bundy, 31, also sought as a suspect in a string of sex slayings in four western states, was arraigned on 41 charges of automobile theft, burglary and forgery. Tria, was set for May 9 and a public defender was appointed.
He faces a possible total of 240 years in prison if convicted and given maximum sentences on all counts.
Three of 21 credit card allegedly stolen by Bundy were taken from FSU students at a bar next to the Chi Omega sorority house where the two women were murdered.
Bundy, a second-year law student with degree in psychology, said he will represent himself on a charge of escape from a Colorado jail, which was not involved in yesterday's arraignment. But he said he wanted the public defender to handle the fogery, theft and burglary charges.
