BALSAM LAKE, Wis. (AP) -- A 45-year-old man has pleaded not guilty in the killing of a Milltown woman he said was his fiancee.

Attorney Mark Biller entered the plea on behalf of Scott Youngmark during a hearing Wednesday in Polk County court.

Youngmark is charged with first-degree intentional homicide in the death of 47-year-old Kari Roberts. Roberts was found dead in her apartment Dec. 1.

A criminal complaint alleges Youngmark stabbed Roberts in the hips and thighs, fractured bones in her face and caused other sharp force injuries.

The defense is working on a motion to move the trial. The St. Paul Pioneer Press (http://bit.ly/ZbnmET) reports a motion hearing is scheduled for April 16.
