WAUSAU (WAOW) -- The man accused of murdering a DC Everest student made a court appearance on Thursday.

Raul Ponce-Rocha has been charged with killing 18-year-old Breanna Schneller last May.

A defense lawyer argued police failed to give Ponce-Rocha his Miranda rights when they interviewed him. But the judge ruled otherwise, adding that Ponce-Rocha made his statements to officers voluntarily.

Ponce-Rocha pleaded not guilty to the murder.
