A New York man has pleaded not guilty to charges he killed a Maine couple on Christmas morning in Manchester.

The Kennebec Journal reports
29-year-old David Marble Jr. of Rochester, New York, was arraigned Tuesday at the Capital Judicial Center in Augusta. He remains held without bail.

Marble was indicted in February on charges of intentional or knowing murder in the shooting deaths of 35-year-old Eric Williams and 26-year-old Bonnie Royer.

An affidavit released Tuesday says Williams, two other men and a woman - not Royer - burglarized Marble's apartment in the early morning hours of Dec. 25. It indicates Marble believed Williams was behind the burglary.

One of the two shooting victims called 911 from an isolated dirt road in Manchester a few hours later.
