UTICA, N.Y. -- The man accused of killing a Utica teen was arraigned in Oneida County Court Monday.

Brandon Clark, 21 from Cicero, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges in the death of 17-year-old Bianca Devins.

As part of the court procedures, an offer was made. In this case, the plea offer extended is the maximum sentence for the crime.

The case is adjourned until September 16 for filing of motions, the peoples answers, oral arguments, and court decision is scheduled for September 23.

Family and friends of Bianca Devins, filled the court room, wearing pink and pins that said “Justice for Bianca.”

Last week, an Oneida County Grand Jury returned an indictment, which formally charged him with the murder of Devins.

Clark is being held without bail.

Clark's attorney, Luke Nebush, says the investigation is still on going.
