Tampa man pleads not guilty to killing mother of his twins

TAMPA — Cedrick Salter, a Tampa man accused of fatally shooting the mother of his twins, pleaded not guilty Monday to a first-degree murder charge.

Salter, 28, has remained in custody without bail since turning himself in to authorities who charged him in the death of SaQuanda Tamika Simon, 31.

Prosecutors said Salter shot Simon on Sept. 8 as she held one of their 18-month-old twins. A local DJ, Salter goes by the name Woogie and Woogieman.

In addition to the twins, Simon, a widow, also had two older children from her marriage.
