A defendant accused of killing a woman in West Hollywood in early July and placing her body in a dumpster pleaded not guilty on Aug. 4 to a murder charge.
Abdulla Tario Camran, 29, remains in custody on $2 million bail. He is charged with murdering Joie Nicole Kinney, whose body was found on July 6 in a dumpster in an alley in the 8700 block of Beverly Boulevard.
Camran was arrested on July 19 after authorities received a tip that he was in Pomona. Authorities described the defendant and victim as transients who frequented the neighborhood where Kinney’s body was found. Kinney and Camran were allegedly in a “dating relationship,” according to a press release issued the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office.
The defendant was ordered to appear for a preliminary hearing on Aug. 25, said District Attorney’s Office spokesman Ricardo Santiago.
Camran faces up to 25 years in prison if convicted.
