BROCKTON, Mass. (AP) - A Brockton man has pleaded not guilty to assaulting and robbing a woman before she was run over and killed by a tow truck.

Bail was set at $100,000 for 47-year-old George Rhodes at his arraignment Friday.

Prosecutors say Rhodes attacked 54-year-old Sebrena McLean on Monday evening, minutes before police responded to reports a backing tow truck had run over a woman in a garage. McLean was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Prosecutor Keara Kelley said surveillance video showed McLean entering the area near the garage with a man believed to be Rhodes, and the man leaving alone. Kelley said McLean had injuries to her head and chest consistent with a beating.

The tow truck is owned by a service station that uses the private parking garage.

Rhode was arrested at a Boston homeless shelter Thursday.
