A man who was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted list when he was captured last month has pleaded not guilty to murder charges in the 2014 strangulation of his fiancee in New Jersey.

Lamont Stephenson entered his plea Monday during a brief hearing where he was represented by a public defender. He will remain jailed until his trial, which hasn’t been scheduled.

Stephenson is charged in the death of Olga DeJesus. She was found strangled in 2014, the FBI previously said. Newark police officers found DeJesus and her dog unresponsive in bed inside her Newark apartment.

Her body was found inside her Newark apartment. He was placed on the FBI’s Top 10 list in October 2018 and was captured in Maryland on March 7.

Stephenson was in a truck when Prince George’s County police approached him while investigating a suspicious person call. He told the officers he was homeless but later said he was a wanted man.
