HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey teenager has pleaded not guilty to charges that he fatally stabbed his sister at their family’s home.

The Record (https://bit.ly/1n7mPyV) reports that Travis Gallo, who was 17 when the stabbing occurred last December, entered his pleas Monday during a court hearing in Hackensack. That came just days after a judge ruled Gallo would be tried as an adult on murder and weapons charges.

Authorities say Gallo stabbed his 20-year-old sister, Teia, multiple times with a kitchen knife in their family’s home in Washington Township, an affluent suburb just northwest of upper Manhattan. Her remains jailed on $2 million bail.

Robert Gallo, a gynecologist with a practice in Hackensack, and his wife are the parents of nine biological children and three adopted children, including Travis and Teia.
