AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - A Texas man accused in a 2007 killing spree that left six people dead has pleaded not guilty to a pair of the slayings.

Paul Devoe, 45, on Wednesday appeared in court in Austin and pleaded not guilty to capital murder in the deaths of two teenage girls. Jury selection is set for Friday.

The Austin American-Statesman reports Devoe first told the judge "Guilty, your honor," then, after conferring with his attorney, quickly changed his plea to: "Not guilty, your honor."

The investigation involves the fatal shooting of a man at a bar in Marble Falls, four killings in Jonestown, including 15-year-old Haylie Faulkner and 17-year-old Danielle Hensley, and the slaying of a woman in Greencastle, Pa.

Prosecutors are seeking the death penalty against Devoe, who was captured in Long Island, N.Y.
