LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 50-year-old former blackjack dealer has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, murder and other charges in the death of her ex-boyfriend's daughter, and the slashing attack of a co-worker at a Las Vegas Strip casino.

Brenda Stokes Wilson entered the plea Wednesday before Clark County District Court Judge Kathleen Delaney.

Trial was set for July 15.

Stokes Wilson is accused of killing 10-year-old Jade Morris during a Christmas shopping outing in December, and of attacking a 44-year-old Joyce Rhone with razors at the Bellagio casino later that night.

Stokes Wilson was a friend of the girl's father. Police and family members say they think the attacks were sparked by jealousy.

After the plea, the girl's father, Philip Morris, said, "I don't know why she doesn't just plead guilty."
