A 54-year-old man who prosecutors say has a significant criminal history is accused of bludgeoning his live-in girlfriend to death with a hammer in their Massachusetts home after a night of drinking and drugs before hiding in a shed down the road, where police found him and took him into custody.

Matthew Lucas pleaded not guilty on Wednesday in Fall River District Court to murder in the killing of Heidi Chace, 44. He was ordered held in custody without bail, prosecutors said.

The suspect’s daughter reacted to the horrific outside court.

“I knew my dad had issues, but I didn’t think he would kill somebody,” she said, CBS Providence, Rhode Island, affiliate WPRI reported.
