A Brooklyn man pled not guilty Tuesday to charges in connection with an apartment fire in 2006 that killed four people.
Samuel Martinez, 38, is charged with eight counts of murder in the second degree.
The indictment comes after a six-year investigation by the fire department and the Brooklyn district attorney's office.
Investigators say Martinez intentionally set fire to a building on Pacific Street in Crown Heights on the morning of February 26, 2006.
They believe it was payback for a dispute with a heroin dealer.
Four people died in the fire, including a three-year-old girl and her one-year-old brother.
Martinez is already serving time on a 2010 burglary charge.
If convicted on these charges, he faces 25 years to life in prison.
