NEW YORK (AP) - A man accused of gunning down a woman after she left her job for the day as director of a Bronx homeless shelter has been arraigned on kidnapping and murder charges.

Prosecutors said Tuesday that 39-year-old West Spruill pleaded not guilty to the charges that also included weapons possession.

Spruill is accused of accosting 35-year-old Ana Charle at gunpoint as she got into her car April 27.

Prosecutors say the former shelter resident forced her to drive to a secluded area a block away where at some point the woman managed to flee the vehicle naked.

Prosecutors say Spruill, who was also naked, chased her down and shot her multiple times.

Spruill is due back in court on Thursday when the judge is to determine Spruill’s request to represent himself.
