CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A former Fortune 500 executive is pleading not guilty to murder in a fatal car crash that he told investigators was a suicide attempt.

Robert Dellinger, 54, of Sunapee, had been due to appear in court Monday on two counts of second-degree murder.

His lawyer has filed documents entering Dellinger's pleas and waiving Monday's hearing.

Dellinger has been held without bond since his arrest in the December crash that killed 29-year-old Jason Timmons and 24-year-old Amanda Murphy, of Wilder, Vermont.

Murphy was eight months pregnant. Dellinger is also charged with second-degree assault in the death of the fetus.

Dellinger was a senior vice president and chief financial officer at PPG Industries Inc. when he left in 2011 because of health problems.
