An 18-year-old man charged with the fatal stabbing of an 11-year-old Keansburg girl today pleaded not guilty Monday.

Earlier this month, a grand jury charged Andreas Erazo, 18, with aggravated sexual assault after it was allegedly determined that he sexually penetrated Abbiegail Smith before he stabbed her to death on July 12.

The indictment charged Erazo with murder, felony murder, three counts of aggravated sexual assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.

Prosecutors are seeking life in prison without parole for Erazo.
