PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Two homeless men arrested in last week’s fatal stabbing of a chef in downtown Portland have appeared in court and entered not guilty pleas.

The victim, 43-year-old Marc Sundin, wandered bleeding through a downtown park before dying on a sidewalk near City Hall early on Oct. 16. The cause of death was a stab wound to the chest.

The Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/ycsmQv ) that 18-year-old Wesley Curtis is accused of murder, unlawful use of a weapon and assault. He’s held without bail. The second man, 23-year-old Adam Elder, is accused of assault, unlawful use of a weapon and failure to register as a sex offender. He’s held on $300,000 bail.

Both were arraigned Tuesday in Multnomah County Circuit Court. They’re due back in court Oct. 29.

Family members last saw Sundin leaving a condo the previous night to attend a concert.

Investigators reviewed dozens of hours of video surveillance images from downtown buildings.
