Through a public defender, Brian Steven Smith entered not guilty pleas in the hotel room torture and killing of Kathleen Henry, a crime documented with photos and videos — evidence that ended up in the hands of Anchorage Police detectives last month. 

Smith, a 48-year-old immigrant from South Africa, is indicted on eight felony charges: one count of first-degree murder, two counts of second-degree murder, two counts of second-degree sexual assault, and three counts of tampering with physical evidence.  

He was arrested on Oct. 8, six days after human remains were found at mile 108 of the Seward Highway on Oct. 2.
