LAMAR, Mo. -- The man accused of the kidnapping and murder of Adriaunna Horton waived formal arraignment today in Barton County and entered a not guilty plea in the case.

Bobby Bourne, who is charged with kidnapping, rape, and first-degree murder in the death of the 12-year-old Barton County girl, is to be back in the courtroom on March 17 for a pre-hearing conference, according to online court records.

According to the court documents, after being arrested, Bourne admitted to picking up Horton near Hazel's Park. He claimed Horton later ran away from him, fell down and died from injuries in the fall.

The probable cause statement says Bourne led investigators to a wooded area southwest of Golden City, where he said Horton's body would be found.

An autopsy showed Adriaunna was strangled to death.

Bourne is being held on $2 million bond.
