PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — The man accused of killing a Port Charlotte teenager after breaking into a home was in court today for his arraignment.

Ryan Cole pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder and burglary charges.

Cole’s attorney waived a speedy trial on both charges.

In September, investigators say Cole broke into a home and stabbed 15-year-old Khyler Edman to death while his 5-year-old sister hid in the other room.

Cole is due back in court on April 9th.
