Atty: Murder suspect to plead not guilty

December 4, 2009 Timera Branch faces first-degree murder charges in the death last month of 17-year-old John Keyes.

Relatives of the victim say he and Branch's son had been feuding over a girl.

Branch's attorney, Liam Dixon, said he's concerned about media coverage of the case and calls information released by authorities "one-sided."

Dixon said Branch plans to enter a not guilty plea.
