RIVERSIDE (CBS) — The man accused of kidnapping and killing 17-year-old Norma Lopez pleaded not guilty in her murder Wednesday.

Jesse Perez Torres, 35, faces murder and kidnapping charges. If convicted, he could face the death penalty or life without parole.

Prosecutors say DNA links him to the field where the Moreno Valley teen was kidnapped while walking to a friend’s home after a summer school class in July 2010.

Torres lived within a block of Lopez’s school.
