A Rhode Island man has pleaded not guilty to the 2012 murder of his girlfriend.

54-year-old David Sousa of Warren was charged with strangling to death 52-year-old Lisa Mello in her Swansea home last November. She was his girlfriend at the time.

Sousa was arraigned Tuesday morning in Fall River Superior Court after he was held in Rhode Island since October on a probation violation.

Sousa is being held without bail.
