The Rome man accused of killing his wife and dumping her body in a dumpster was in Oneida County Court on Friday.

Jason D'Avolio pleaded not guilty to charges of second-degree murder and concealment of a human corpse in the death of Kerrliee D'Avolio.

Her body was found in the Ava landfill in July.

The District Attorney's Office has made a plea offer to D'Avolio.

He'll be back in court in early October.
