ST. LOUIS COUNTY – A man accused of being a serial rapist pleaded not guilty Wednesday.

Adam Capriglione, 29, was charged in April of raping, sodomizing, and torturing multiple women since 2006. One of the victims says Capriglione choked her until she was unconscious, burned her, cut her with scissors and beat her with a rubber mallet. Court documents said she suffered burns to her servix.

Capriglione was arrested in January after one of his victims escaped. Since then police have found four more victims.

He remains in custody on $500,000 bond.
