Sidarovich murder suspects plead not guilty

CHARLOTTE COUNTY - Two people charged in connection with a decade old murder case, have plead not guilty.

David McMannis and Linda Dille both entered pleas of not guilty this week. McMannis and Phillip Barr are charged with the murder of 19-year-old Tara Sidarovich in 2001.

The two men were called to the Sidarovich home to work on a septic tank. They were the last two people to see Sidarovich alive.

Months later her remains were found in a wooded area in Punta Gorda.

Dille is charged with lying to detectives during the initial investigation. Barr, who was caught last month in Vermont after a nationwide manhunt, will be arraigned next month.
