Offender pleads not guilty to Bellevue strangling
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.

Halgren was convicted of a 1989 kidnapping and rape of a Bellevue woman and was committed in 2002 at McNeil Island.
