The man accused of hitting a woman with his vehicle and dragging her for more than three miles near Foxborough, Massachusetts, pleaded not guilty to several charges at his arraignment Tuesday.

The woman, Kanchanben Patel, 58, was killed, the Norfolk County District Attorney’s Office said.

Moses Acloque, 22, allegedly ran into her and another pedestrian in the town of Wrentham around 10 p.m., the district attorney’s office said in a statement.

At arraignment, prosecutors said Acloque was confronted by management of a hotel after allegedly using a room illegally. Acloque tried to get away in his truck and allegedly struck a parked car before causing the collisions that resulted in the injury and death.
