ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP) - Police say they've charged two people with killing a western New York college professor during a robbery last month.

The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle reports that 26-year-old Natalie Johnson and 28-year-old Jerrell Henry, both of Rochester, have pleaded not guilty during their arraignment Friday on second-degree murder charges.

They're accused of shooting 73-year-old Edline Chun twice in the head at her home in the city on Feb. 3. Her body was found in a ravine on Feb. 6.

Chun had taught for 20 years at the Rochester Institute of Technology's College of Imaging Arts and Sciences.

Johnson and Henry are being held without bail and are due back in court Wednesday.
