The North Adams man who allegedly bludgeoned and stabbed his wife to death is being held without bail.
Mark Steele-Knudslien entered a not guilty plea to murder charges in Northern Berkshire District Court on Monday in connection to the death of Christa Leigh Steele-Knudslien.
North Adams police reports indicate Mark told officers he snapped after the couple got into an argument, killed his wife, wrapped her body in a tarp, took a shower, and went to liquor store before eventually turning himself in.
Christa was a transgender woman and the organizer of the Miss Trans New England Pageant.
