The man suspected of orchestrating the murder of his ex-girlfriend’s family because of a custody dispute pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Johnny Borizov said the 26-count indictment against him is based on the statements of an alleged gunman who can’t be trusted. He asked that his trial be held within months, according to the Chicago Tribune.

Borizov is charged with the murders of Jeffrey Kramer, Lori Kramer and their son, 20-year-old Michael Kramer. The crime took place on March 2.

Prosecutors say Borizov persuaded Jacob Nodarse to kill Angela Kramer, her parents and brother over a custody dispute. Angela Kramer escaped injury by hiding in a closet.

Nodarse was arrested in Florida a day after the murders. He gave a statement to police implicating Borizov. Nodarse’s arraignment is expected for April 7.

Prosecutors have said both Borizov and Nodarse are eligible for the death penalty, but that no decision has been made to seek it.
