The suspect of the murder of TikTok star Anthony Barajas case has pleaded “not guilty” on account of insanity. Joseph Jimenez entered his plea on Monday in connection with the deaths of Barajas, a social media star with more than one million followers, and his date Rylee Goodrich.

The couple was watching a late-night showing of the most recent movie in The Purge franchise. After the credits finished, employees responsible for cleaning the theatres found both Goodrich and Barajas slumped over in their seats. Goodrich was pronounced dead on the scene while Barajas was rushed to the hospital and placed on life support. He passed away just a few days later. Both died of gunshot wounds to the head.

Jimenez was charged with two counts of murder and could face life in prison. He waived his right to a speedy trial and will be returning to court on October 22.
