Ogden pleads not guilty in daughter’s slaying

Matthew Ogden

Matthew Ogden, the Parachute man facing a murder charge in the 2015 death of his month-old daughter, pleaded not guilty Monday.

Ogden was arrested following an incident in June, when his wife, Phyllis “Amy” Wyatt, said she awoke in the night to see him violently shaking their daughter. She told police that he then took their daughter, Sarah Ogden, into the next room, where she heard pounding and thumping noises while he continued yelling.

Wyatt pleaded guilty in December to child abuse resulting in death, and she was sentenced to eight years in the Colorado Department of Corrections.

A jury trial is scheduled to begin Sept. 26, and hearings on pretrial motions are scheduled to begin June 21.
