An animal lab technician has pleaded not guilty in the 2008 murder of a Yale University graduate student. WNPR's Diane Orson reports.
Raymond Clark the Third entered a not guilty plea in New Haven Superior Court in the killing of 24-year old Yale pharmacology student Annie Le. Le disappeared in September. Her body was discovered five days later behind the wall of a high security, university research building. An autopsy revealed she’d died of asphyxiation.
Clark also waived his right to a probable cause hearing, where prosecutors show there’s enough evidence to justify the charges. In the arrest warrant, police allege that a bloody sock and green ink pen hidden near the body contain DNA evidence linking Clark to the murder.
