Offender pleads not guilty to Bellevue strangling

SEATTLE -- A man who has been held as a sex predator at the Special Commitment Center on McNeil Island pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Seattle to a murder charge in the rape and strangling of a 19-year-old woman 33 years ago in Bellevue.
The King County prosecutor's office said if Michael Allan Halgren, 56, is convicted he could face a sentence of up to life in prison.
New DNA evidence led cold case investigators to charge Halgren in the 1980 slaying of Susan Barbara Lowe.
Halgren was convicted of a 1989 kidnapping and rape of a Bellevue woman and was committed in 2002 at McNeil Island.
