Sex offender charged in boy’s killing

A Kentucky man pleaded not guilty Thursday to the murder of a 4-year-old boy whose body was found in the trash near his home.

Cecil New of Louisville was indicted Wednesday on charges that included killing Cesar Ivan Aguilar-Cano and kidnapping, The Louisville Courier-Journal reported. New, who was convicted of sex offenses in 1992, was also charged with being a persistent felony offender.

New is being held in lieu of $1 million cash bail.

The boy’s body was discovered July 7 in the back of a garbage truck. The child, who had last been seen more than a week earlier outside his home near Churchill Downs, was identified two days later.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for January.
