WTVO/WQRF - The former suburban Milwaukee Police officer accused of killing a teenager, then stuffing her body into a suitcase is arraigned.

Steven Zelich pled not guilty Monday in connection with the 2012 death of 19 year-old Oregon College student, Jenny Gamez.  Zelich is accused of killing her during a sexual choking game, then hiding her body in a suitcase for months.

Zelich already pled not guilty in the death of a Minnesota woman who died under similar circumstances.  The 52 year-old is expected to be back in court Oct. 21st.
