    Bail is set at $6 million for a New Jersey man accused of killing five people over a two-month period.

    Shiquan Bellamy appeared in court Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to the slayings. He was represented by a lawyer who was filling in for his public defender.

    Bellamy was recently charged with two women in the execution-style slayings of a couple in Jersey City who had returned from their engagement party on Easter.

    The 19-year-old was charged Monday with three more killings.

    Bellamy is charged in the Feb. 2 felony murders of cousins Mileak Richardson and Lester "Bleek" Thompson in Jersey City.

    Bellamy is also charged with the fatal shooting of Lamonte Wright on March 27 in Jersey City.
