Alleged Halle Berry stalker charged with burglary

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors have charged a man accused of stalking Halle Berry with felony burglary for being in the actress' guest house earlier this month.

Richard A. Franco pleaded not guilty to the additional charge during a court appearance Wednesday in Los Angeles. He now faces two felonies stemming from three incidents in which he was spotted on the Oscar winner's property in mid-July.

Berry has written in court filings that she is "extremely frightened" of the 27-year-old. She says he nearly gained entry into her kitchen before she was able to lock the door.

Criminal and civil judges have issued restraining orders against Franco in case he is released.

He has pleaded not guilty to stalking the actress and is due in court on Aug. 4.
