The La Plata County father accused in the death of his 13-year-old son, Dylan, was back in court on Friday to enter a not guilty plea and request a jury trial.

Redwine was arrested in Washington state last fall on charges of second degree murder and child abuse resulting in death in the 2012 murder of Dylan.

Dylan’s remains were found in a remote area northwest of his father’s home hear Vallecito Reservoir in May of 2013. Investigators said DNA evidence taken from the father’s home and truck tied him to the murder.

The indictment alleges the father and son had several disagreements before and during a court-ordered visit in 2012. The arguments centered on a custody dispute between his parents and reportedly disturbing and compromising photos of his father. 

Redwine will return to court in November for a pre-trial hearing.
