Towanda, PA (WBNG Binghamton) A Waverly man pleads not guilty to double murder of an Bradford County couple.

John DeSisti, 73, was formally arraigned in Bradford County Court in Towanda Monday morning.

DeSisti pleaded not guilty to 2 counts of murder and 1 count of burglary.

He is charged with the 2006 murders of his cousin, Carol Keefe and her husband, David. The couple were shot in an ambush-style execution at their home in Athens Township.

No date has been set yet for a pre-trial hearing.

DeSisti is being held in the Bradford County Correctional Facility without bail.
