Hand Pleads Not Guilty To Gilpin Murder

A judge is ordering the man accused of  killing teenager Tracy Gilpin in 1986 to remain in custody without  bail.

Hand is accused of  killing the Kingston teenager, who was the sister of current State  Police Colonel Kerry Gilpin, and dumping her body in the woods of  Plymouth. 

Prosecutors say Hand placed himself at the scene of the  killing in an interview, although he accuses another man of committing  the murder.
