COLUMBUS, Miss. (WTVA) -- A Caledonia man has pleaded not guilty to a two-count federal indictment for enticement of a child.

Kevin Ross Smith, 30, of Wolfe Road entered the plea during an arraignment hearing in U. S. District in Aberdeen on Tuesday.

Lowndes County authorities arrested Smith in September after investigators say he sent sexually explicit messages to an underage girl through a social media website.

He was arrested again in October after authorities discovered he had sent messages to another girl.

The federal indictment says he internet and cellphone communications to try to arrange to meet a 13-year-old and a 14-year-old for sexual purposes.

A federal judge ordered Smith to remain in jail until his trial.
