WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A Waterloo man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he killed his wife and set her body on fire in cemetery last year.

The Courier reports that 28-year-old Fredrick Williams filed a written plea of not guilty to the Black Hawk County District Court.

Williams is charged with first-degree murder and abuse of a corpse in the death of 40-year-old Lakisha Williams. An autopsy determined she was asphyxiated.

The woman's body was found Jan. 26, 2018, on the ground in a remote area of Garden of Memories cemetery in Waterloo. Her mother had reported her missing a day earlier.
