RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A man accused in the stabbing death of a Long Island high school student has pleaded not guilty.
Adam Saalfield, 21, appeared in court in Riverhead Thursday after being indicted for second degree murder. He is being held without bail.
Prosecutors said Saalfield used a knife-like object to slash the neck of his neighbor, 18-year old Maggie Rosales, in Huntington Station last month, WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reported.
Authorities said he came up from behind and grabbed the high school student, who did not hear him coming because she was wearing ear buds and listening to music.
