MILFORD, Mass. (AP) - A man accused of fatally stabbing another man in a Massachusetts apartment last month has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault and battery.

The Milford Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/2hIfpY3 ) that Jusselo Dias Dos Reis was arraigned Tuesday in Milford District Court. His attorney didn’t object to the $1 million cash bail set by a clerk magistrate.

Prosecutors say the body of Geraldo Carlos Do Amaral was found in a Milford apartment on July 16. Investigators allege he was stabbed with a kitchen knife by Dos Reis.

The 44-year-old man was arrested in New Jersey two days after the stabbing. Authorities say the case is still under investigation, and the Brazilian native could face additional or higher charges.
