NEW YORK (AP) - A man accused of killing a 6-year-old boy and injuring a 7-year-old girl in a public housing building elevator has pleaded not guilty.

Daniel St. Hubert pleaded not guilty Wednesday to charges of murder, attempted murder, assault and weapons possession in connection with the June 1 attack.

Prince Joshua Avitto was stabbed to death; his best friend, Mikayla Capers, left the hospital a few weeks ago.

The district attorney's office provided a statement Wednesday that St. Hubert made to police officers shortly he was taken into custody.

The New York Times says he said "Satan has powers and controls things," and then added, "I think I need a lawyer."

Defense lawyer Edward Friedman says he's considering a psychiatric defense.

St. Hubert was due back in court on Aug. 8.

    More than half the population of New York City rides public transportation to work. No other metropolis in this country even approaches that percentage or the MTA's total number of riders. For that reason, New York likely ranks as the most energy-efficient city in the nation. But what would it take to make the city even more energy-efficient or even self-sufficient?

Now there's plenty of room to stand on most days.Basketball programs like one at Chelsea Piers are gaining popularity. That means the place to hoop it up for many appears to be indoors.
