NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

Nassau County Police say an 18-year-old man was charged in the death of a teen on a Long Island footbridge Thursday night.

Authorities arrested Maxwell Sherman of Long Beach on Saturday for strangling 18-year-old Lauren Daverin of Lynbrook. Sherman has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Police found Daverin’s body on the Mill Pond footbridge located between the Sunrise Highway and Merrick Road around 10:00 p.m.

According to the NY Post, friends told police Daverin had been hanging out with friends on the bridge when they left her alone for an hour on Thursday night. The friends returned later to find her naked body, except for her boots, in a pool of blood.

Police have not said whether Sherman and victim Lauren Daverin had known each other.

Maxwell is being charged with 2nd Degree Murder and will be arraigned on Sunday in First District Court in Hempstead. He is being held without bail pending his next court appearance Wednesday.
