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

The Record (https://bit.ly/1yJOXNC) reports that 18-year-old Travis Gallo entered his pleas Monday during an arraignment held in Hackensack. He faces several counts, including first-degree murder and weapons counts.

Gallo was 17 when the stabbing occurred in December 2013, and a judge ruled that he could be tried as an adult.

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. He remains jailed on $2 million bail.

Authorities have said the attack apparently occurred during an argument between the two siblings, but further details haven’t been disclosed.
