ALFRED, Maine (AP) - A man accused of causing a Maine woman’s fatal heart attack by knocking on her door and windows during a 2015 attempted burglary has pleaded not guilty to felony murder.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1UrUbZn ) 24-year-old Carlton Young entered the plea Monday in Alfred in the death of 62-year-old Connie Loucks. He had previously pleaded not guilty to multiple burglary charges.

The Sanford man was initially accused of being part of a burglary ring in southern Maine. Authorities say he and at least one other person broke into Loucks’ home when she wasn’t there on March 21, 2015 and returned the following day to break in again.

Prosecutors brought the murder charge after Young backed out of a scheduled plea and sentencing hearing May 10 to the burglary charges.
