A Rochester woman charged with murder in the death of a mother of four small children appeared in court Wednesday.

Joanne Armour-Christopher, 42, of Rochester, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. She was arrested in Chicago last month.  That's where police say she went after killing 28-year-old Lacandice Miles. Miles' body was found inside her apartment on Strathmore Circle. 

Investigators say her four small children were also inside the apartment. They were not hurt.
