The man and a woman charged in the murder of 60-year-old Worcester man, Domingo Ortiz, have pleaded not guilty.

Steven Pietrowicz and Michelle Morin entered the pleas at their arraignments on Wednesday morning and are being held without bail. 

Ortiz’s body was discovered under a cement slab beneath a newly constructed deck at a home shared by Pietrowicz and Morin on Douglas Pike in Burrillville. Ortiz had been reported missing for a month when his body was found under several inches of cement.               

Corey Bickhardt, of Sciota, Pennsylvania, was also indicted and is being held in there on unrelated charges.
