Jamie Hood, who confessed to killing an Athens-Clarke County police officer and wounding another, has pleaded not guilty.
"How do you plea?" asked Athens-Clarke County Judge Patrick Haggard. "Not guilty," responded Hood during his Friday afternoon arraignment.
The hearing was the latest in a series of bizarre and drawn-out proceedings.
Hood has confessed to shooting and killing officer Elmer "Buddy" Christian and wounding officer Tony Howard in March 2010.
Hood, like he has in almost every other hearing, repeatedly interrupted his own lawyer.
His outbursts were not as loud or as angry as they had been in earlier proceedings, but they were frequent as he accused others of stalling the case largely delayed by his own antics.
Hood, during his arraignment, delivered a rambling speech, complaining of a corrupt criminal justice system and claiming that he and his family received death threats. He, however, did not explain why he believed he was not responsible for the crime to which he admitted.
