Man Accused of Claremont Killings Pleads Not Guilty

The man accused of Perth's Claremont killings has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Bradley Robert Edwards faces nine charges including the murders of 23-year-old Jane Rimmer, 27-year-old Ciara Glennon and Sarah Spiers, 18, in 1996 and 1997.

Ms Rimmer's body was discovered in August 1996, while Ms Glennon's body was found in April 1997.

Ms Spiers' body has never been found.

Edwards, 49, was charged with the murder of Ms Rimmer and Ms Glennon after a raid on his Kewdale home in December 2016.

He was charged with Ms Spiers' murder in February.

Edwards is also charged with abducting and raping a 17-year-old girl in February 1995 and indecently assaulting an 18-year-old woman during a break-in at a home in February 1988.

Edwards appeared in Stirling Gardens Magistrates Court on Wednesday via video link from Hakea remand prison and will face court for a mention in September.

The prosecution is pushing for provisional trial dates to be set as soon as possible, hoping it can be held before the end of next year.

The fathers of two of the murder victims, Denis Glennon and Don Spiers, declined to speak with media outside court.

The case is WA's longest-running and most expensive police investigation.
