Portuguese model pleads not guilty to murder in Times Square hotel
The male model accused of torturing and killing a Portuguese fashion journalist in a Times Square hotel pleaded not guilty to his murder yesterday.
Renato Seabra, 21, was indicted for second-degree murder in the death of Carlos Castro, 65, who was found beaten and castrated, the Manhattan DA’s office said.
He faces 25 years to life if convicted. While acquaintances have said the two were a couple, Seabra’s mother has denied the claim.
