    have ever been / ever having been

    Hi,


    -The accused denied ... in the vicinity of the murder scene.

    -to have ever been
    -ever having been

    For the gap, which one is more suitable? I did not figure out, especially grammatically.

    Than you in advance..

    The second one is correct.

    "Deny" is usually followed by an "-ing" verb form, not a full infinitive.
