HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) - A northern New Jersey teenager has pleaded not guilty to charges that he fatally stabbed his sister at their family's home.
The Record reports that Travis Gallo, who was 17 when the stabbing occurred last December, entered his pleas Monday during a court hearing in Hackensack. That came just days after a judge ruled Gallo would be tried as an adult on murder and weapons charges.
Authorities say Gallo stabbed his 20-year-old sister, Teia, multiple times with a kitchen knife in their family's home in Washington Township, an affluent suburb just northwest of upper Manhattan. Her remains jailed on $2 million bail.
Robert Gallo, a gynecologist with a practice in Hackensack, and his wife are the parents of nine biological children and three adopted children, including Travis and Teia.
