The husband of a New York City teacher found stabbed to death over the summer has been arraigned on a second-degree murder charge.

The Staten Island Advance says Jonathan Crupi did not speak during his court appearance Wednesday.

His not-guilty plea was entered by his attorney, Mario F. Gallucci.

Simeonette Mapes-Crupi was stabbed repeatedly in the couple's Staten Island condo sometime between July 4 and July 5.

Many of the victim's relatives were present during the arraignment. They consoled her weeping mother outside court.

Crupi is due back in court on Jan. 28.
