LOWELL, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say a man broke into the home of a woman he knows, killed a tenant, then raped the woman when she got home and discovered the dead body.

Hoeup Honn was held without bail at his arraignment Tuesday pending a hearing to determine whether he is a danger. Not guilty pleas to charges including aggravated rape and assault and battery causing serious bodily injury were entered on his behalf. Prosecutors say they anticipate filing a murder charge.

Authorities in a statement say police responded to a Lowell home at about 3 p.m. Monday after the woman fled when the suspect fell asleep.

A male tenant in his 50s was found dead.

The victims’ names were not released.



The 38-year-old Honn’s court-appointed attorney declined comment.
