NEW YORK (AP) - Two men have been arraigned on charges in connection with the death of a Connecticut man who’d attended a party at a Manhattan luxury apartment building.

James Rackover, of Manhattan, and Lawrence Dilione, of Jersey City, New Jersey, both pleaded not guilty Tuesday to concealment of a human body, hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

Rackover owned the East Side apartment where authorities say 26-year-old Joseph Comunale (kahm-yoo-NAHL’-ee) was stabbed 15 times.

Investigators have been working to determine who killed the Stamford, Connecticut man, whose body was found in New Jersey. Murder charges could still be forthcoming.

A third person, 26-year-old Max Gemma, of Oceanport, New Jersey, has been arrested in connection with the case. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.
