The Rhinelander man accused of helping plot the murder of Hannah Miller has pleaded not guilty.

Seth Wakefield is charged with first-degree intentional homicide as party to a crime for Miller’s death in June.

Prosecutors say Wakefield helped Christopher Anderson plan the woman’s murder.

According to court records, Wakefield, a friend of Anderson’s, was aware for weeks that Anderson planned to kill Miller and her parents, and then abduct the child he shared with Miller.

Records show Anderson asked Wakefield to conduct surveillance of Miller's apartment on at least two occasions, so Anderson would know if she was home.

When asked if he thought he should tell authorities of the plan to kill Miller, Wakefield reportedly told officers he didn't think he should and that it wasn't any of his business.

Police believe Anderson shot and killed Miller in late June. Her body was found on the side of the road in Oneida County.

Wakefield is being held on a $250,000 cash bond.

His next hearing is set for March 8.
