Lebon Bruno of Portland appeared in court on Friday in connection with the death of Elizabeth Williams of Portland.

ALFRED, Maine (AP) _ A Maine man accused of raping and beating a woman and leaving her in the bathtub of a Saco motel room has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Lebon Bruno of Portland appeared in court on Friday in connection with the death of Elizabeth Williams of Portland. The 55-year-old Williams was found by housekeepers at the Sunrise Motel on Nov. 6. She died the following day.

The 39-year-old Bruno was charged with murder and sexual assault.

The Portland Press Herald reports that court documents indicate that blood stains on Bruno's shoes and body matched Williams' DNA.

Williams suffered internal injuries, eye and neck bruising, broken teeth, a broken nose and ``a non-survivable brain injury.''

Bruno told police someone else killed the woman.
