Greenslit Pleads Not Guilty in Dismemberment Case

Donald Greenslit, the man accused of fatally stabbing his girlfriend, dismembering and attempting to burn her remains, has pleaded not guilty to various charges stemming from the incident, which happened Jan. 22, 2012.

Last month, Greenslit was indicted on charges including domestic murder, failure to report a death, obstruction of a police officer, and violating a no-contact order.

On Tuesday, a public defender entered a plea of not guilty to all charges on behalf of Mr. Greenslit, who police allege killed 39-year-old Stacie Dorego, his ex-girlfriend at the time.

The couple lived in Johnston had two young children together, who are now being cared for by relatives.

Various court records Greenslit had been accused of assaulting Dorego three times since 2009. The couple had been estranged for some time prior to the murder; Dorego had a no-contact order issued against Greenslit last year.

Greenslit is currently being held without bail.
