Jessi J. Rounds, 32, of Medina, pleaded not guilty Monday in Niagara County Court to charges of first-degree burglary and second-degree assault. Charles Miller, 30, of Lyndonville, is awaiting arraignment on the same charges, Parisi said.

The 44-year-old victim, from Hartland-Somerset Town Line Road, was known to the alleged attackers, Parisi said. The victim spent about two months in a hospital recovering from injuries including a bruised airway and facial fractures, the prosecutor said. The defendants were not arrested until June 4.

Niagara County Judge Matthew J. Murphy III released Rounds on his own recognizance.
