LINCOLN PARISH, La.- - UPDATE (11:30 A.M.): The accused Grambling State University double homicide suspect has plead not guilty.

The teen accused of killing two men on Grambling State University's campus is set to appear in court for formal arraignment today. 

It has been less a week since a grand jury found enough evidence to put 19-year-old Jaylin Wayne on trial for two counts of murder. 

The Grambling Sate University freshman is accused of killing fellow classmate Earl Andrews, and his cousin Monquarius Caldwell, who was visiting the campus during homecoming week.

It was here where prosecutors allege that Wayne and Andrews got into an argument, and Caldwell came to his cousin's defense.

The men's bodies were found in a courtyard between two dorms. 

Less than 24 hours later, Lincoln Parish deputies say Wayne turned himself in, after learning he had a warrant out for his arrest.     

Prosecutors haven't said whether they'll seek the death penalty, or life without parole. 

In the meantime, Wayne's attorneys tell NBC10/FOX14 that they will be filing for a change of venue from the Lincoln Parish Courthouse.
