Not guilty plea over Miley break-in

A convicted burglar charged with breaking into the Los Angeles home of Miley Cyrus has pleaded not guilty to felony charges.

Rusty Sellner, who was arrested earlier this week, entered pleas to burglary, receiving stolen property and grand theft. He could face seven years and eight months in prison if convicted.

Prosecutors allege he broke into the pop star's Toluca Lake home on December 16 and stole a large amount of property belonging to Miley and her brother.

Sellner has previous convictions for burglary and evading arrest.

This is the second burglary for Miley in less than a year. In May, thieves broke into a San Fernando Valley home she owned and took clothes, purses, jewellery and a 2014 Maserati that was later abandoned.

An Arizona couple were later given prison terms.
