A New York City man has pleaded not guilty in the stabbing death of his ex-girlfriend. Twenty Three-year-old Gary McGurk was charged with the April 27 murder of 24-year-old Michelle Lee.

Queens District Attorney Richard Brown charged 23-year-old Gary McGurk with second-degree murder, tampering with physical evidence and criminal possession of a weapon. His attorney says he's innocent.

Lee was bound to her bed, the cord of a cell phone charger wrapped around her neck and a knife buried in her throat. She was bashed in the head with an iron, which was later used to burn her stomach.

Michelle Lee, a civilian forensic investigator for the New York Police Department, was discovered in her bedroom by her roommate on April 27.

The John Jay College student faces a maximum 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
