A suspected serial killer cooperated with the judge at his court hearing Tuesday morning, a week after he refused to speak at his first court appearance in Crown Point, Indiana.

Darren Deon Vann, 43, entered a plea of not guilty to murder charges and answered all of the judge's questions during the roughly seven minute hearing.

Police say Vann has confessed to killing seven women in Gary and Hammond.

He has been charged in the deaths of Merrillville resident Anith Jones and 19-year old Afrika Hardy.

He'll be back in court in January if he isn't charged in the other five cases between now and then.
