MIDDLE ISLAND, N.Y. (AP) - A Long Island man has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge after prosecutors say he killed a man whose body was found behind a shuttered store on Long Island.

Suffolk County prosecutors say Michael Dirkschneider was arraigned Wednesday on murder and weapons possession charges. They allege the Bay Shore man fatally shot 26-year-old Alexander Incorvia.

The victim had been staying at a motel in nearby Medford and was reported missing a few days before his body was found April 2.

Prosecutors say Dirkschneider was arrested on a weapons charge the day Incorvia’s body was found in Middle Island.

They say a .45 caliber handgun was found in his dresser, which is “believed to be the murder weapon.”

It wasn’t immediately clear if Dirkschneider had an attorney who could comment.
