TULSA, Okla. — The Wagoner woman accused of killing her roommate pleaded not guilty in court on Friday.

Kore Bommeli returned to Oklahoma on Wednesday after getting arrested in Wisconsin last month. The Wagoner County district attorney filed charges against her, including murder and desecration of a corpse.

Her former roommate Talina Galloway's remains were found in a freezer in Arkansas. Galloway was last seen in April of 2020.

Bommeli originally told investigators Galloway left town after learning she had coronavirus. Investigators said Bommeli lied to them about her involvement in Galloway's disappearance. Now a Wagoner County sheriff is confident justice will be served for Galloway.

"The first thing that will happen is after she's had a chance to meet with her attorney is she will actually be formally arraigned here in Wagoner County and that judicial process will start," Wagoner County Sheriff Chris Elliot said. "We feel very confident that we're going to have a successful prosecution. We feel very confident that we have the person in custody for the death and dismemberment of Talina Galloway."

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 7.
