NEW YORK (AP) — Prosecutors in New York City have charged a relative of the little girl nicknamed "Baby Hope" with felony murder 22 years after she was discovered inside a picnic cooler near a highway.

Conrado Juarez pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in Manhattan Criminal Court late Saturday. The 52-year-old man made no comments and was remanded. He's due back in court Oct. 21. Attorney information was not immediately available.

Assistant District Attorney Melissa Mourges said Juarez admitted to sexually abusing the girl and then smothering her with a pillow. Mourges was the original prosecutor on the case in 1991.

The child's name and the circumstances of her death were a mystery for years until Saturday.

Her name was also revealed: Anjelica Castillo. She was 4.
