NEW HAVEN, Conn. — An animal research technician charged with killing a Yale graduate student is expected to plead not guilty.

Twenty-four-year-old Raymond Clark III is scheduled to appear in New Haven Superior Court on Tuesday.

Joe Lopez, Clark’s attorney, said Clark also plans to waive his right to a probable cause hearing at which prosecutors would have to prove they have enough evidence to justify the murder charge.

Clark is charged with killing 24-year-old Annie Le of Placerville, Calif., whose body was found behind a Yale research lab wall in September. An autopsy determined she was strangled.

Le vanished Sept. 8 from the Yale medical school research building where she and Clark worked, and her body was found five days later, on what was to be her wedding day.
