The 22 year old accused of killing a women with a frying pan last week has been linked to another murder that took place in 2015. James Isiah Brien went to court Tuesday and plead not guilty to deliberate homicide and two counts of assault with a weapon.
Brien was also named as a suspect in a murder in which a man was beaten and left in a hotel room to die. He was later dismembered.
Three others have also been named as suspects in the 2015 case and although no charges have been formally raised, prosecutors say additional charges are expected.
