LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- The man accused of killing a Fort Myers Beach library director had his arraignment on Monday.

Adam Soules, who was indicted on a count of first degree murder, did not appear in court Monday. His attorney entered a plea of not guilty.

Investigators say Soules stabbed Leroy Hommerding at the library last month. He's currently in jail on no bond.

Soules' case management is set for March 6th.
