SANTA ANA, California (AP) -- A Southern California man has pleaded not guilty to charges that he kidnapped a girlfriend's 15-year-old daughter and held her for a decade, making her his wife and committing rape and other crimes.

Forty-one-year-old Isidro Garcia entered the plea Monday through an attorney during a closed-circuit TV arraignment from an Orange County jail.

The judge scheduled further hearings in the case for next month. Garcia remains in custody with bail set at $1 million.

Garcia was arrested last month after the woman, now 25, went two blocks from her apartment to a police station in Los Angeles County's Bell Gardens and accused him of domestic violence. Authorities then connected her to a 2004 missing person report filed by her mother.
