Musician Theo Lengyel, an ex-rockstar who once played in the experimental rock band Mr. Bungle, was arrested in California on Tuesday in connection with the death of his missing girlfriend Alice “Alyx” Kamakaokalani Herrmann.

As Bay Area News Group reports, Lengyel appeared in court Thursday to enter a not-guilty plea. The case is being tried in Santa Cruz County because, apparently, that is where investigators believe Herrmann's murder took place. None of the circumstances have yet been made public.

A longtime friend, Betsy Marvit, told the Santa Cruz Sentinel that Herrmann was something of a prodigy from Hawaii who attended Pomona College at age 16. She went on to get a Bachelor of Sciences degree from Cal Tech, a doctorate in neuroscience, and had a black belt in taekwondo and was multilingual. At 61, she was reportedly very active with the paddle club, and worked as a software engineer.

"[Alyx] was a musician, pescatarian, soft-spoken lover of life, and an adventurous athlete even at 61, with a strong connection to the sea, to her daughter, and to the many friends who loved her very much," Marvit told the paper.

SANTA CRUZ — A 54-year-old El Cerrito man charged with killing his girlfriend and hiding her body beneath a pile of rocks in a Berkeley park was held to answer on charges Wednesday.

After a two-day preliminary hearing on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons, Santa Cruz County Superior Court Judge Nancy de la Peña ruled that the prosecution had provided sufficient preliminary evidence needed to send Theobald Lengyel to trial on felony charges of murder, burglary and vehicle theft.
