The former classmate of Orange County college student Blaze Bernstein pleaded not guilty to murder today.
Samuel Woodward is being held on a $5 million bond and will be back in court on March 3rd. He's accused of stabbing Blaze Bernstein and burying his body in a shallow grave at a park near the Bernstein's Lake Forest home.
