WORCESTER, Mass. (AP) - A 49-year-old Dudley man charged in connection with the death of a Southbridge man found in his home has been held without bail.

David Roman pleaded not guilty in Worcester Superior Court on Thursday to murder and larceny charges stemming from the May killing of 59-year-old Joseph Stanick.

Police say Roman met Stanick for sex, stabbed him to death, then showered and tried to clean up the crime scene. They say he then fled with several stolen items.

They say he admitted being with Stanick in his home and being involved in an altercation.

A defense lawyer said earlier that his client denied many of the allegations and did not murder Stanick.

He is due back in court on Oct. 13.
