ARKADELPHIA The man accused of killing two young girls and their stepfather at their Arkadelphia home made his a third appearance in Clark County Circuit Court since his December arrest.
Afterward, prosecutors said they have "not waived" the death penalty.
Rialkos Lizana, 19, didn't speak during or after the brief hearing Friday before Judge Robert McCallum, during which Lizana's defense attorney acknowledged he had received the case evidence from prosecutors. Officials said some evidence, including items being analyzed at the state Crime Laboratory, are still pending.
Lizana earlier this month pleaded innocent to three counts of capital murder and one count of aggravated residential burglary in the Dec. 6 slayings. He is accused of killing Bobby Jean Galbraith, 40, Adiele Crutchfield, 6, and Marley Crutchfield, 4, inside their home at 1032 S. 11th St.
Two of the bodies were found after Galbraith's wife returned to the home, according to a probable cause affidavit. Responding authorities later discovered the second young girl dead and a 6-month-old girl who was unharmed.
Prosecutors have not divulged specifics on the motive, but a probable cause affidavit indicated Lizana was charged after his palm print matched a bloody one found at the scene.
Prosecutor Blake Batson said after the hearing that he could not comment on the motive. Asked whether he planned to seek the death penalty in the case, he said only that his office filed capital charges and had "not waived" it.
No next hearing date or trial date was set Friday, but McCallum said he would issue a scheduling order detailing the case's progress within 10 days.
Lizana is being held without bail.
