Chris Martin, 2 others bound over for trial

LAWRENCE, Kansas (AP) – Former Kansas football player Chris Martin and two other men have pleaded not guilty in a robbery case stemming from a home invasion in Lawrence.

Martin, Jeremiah Letrell Edwards and Joshua Edwards pleaded Monday and were ordered to return to court in July to set a trial date.

The three men were arrested in May after a Lawrence man reported he had been held at gunpoint in his home and robbed of money and marijuana on May 13.

Martin, a four-star defensive end, never played a game for Kansas. Coach Charlie Weis dismissed Martin from the team in June, saying he had not followed rules he was asked to follow while the criminal case was pending in court.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Martin is in plea negotiations with prosecutors.
