MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man, whose girlfriend disappeared almost a month ago, has pleaded not guilty to 17 felony charges of possessing child pornography. 

38-year-old Kris Zocco entered the pleas Tuesday, after he waived a preliminary hearing.

Milwaukee authorities said Zocco was the last person to see 27-year-old Kelly Dwyer before she vanished on October 10th. Zocco has not been arrested in Dwyer's disappearance -- but he is a person of interest in the case, and police have been rummaging through garbage at a landfill looking for evidence. 

Zocco has been arrested twice on other charges since Dwyer's disappearance.  

A judge rejected Zocco's request to reduce his quarter-billion dollar bond in the child porn case. All parties involved will meet on December 5th. A trial date could be set during that conference. 

A similar scheduling conference is scheduled November 19th on five drug charges against Zocco -- including the maintaining of a drug house.
