Henry Hall was arrested Sept. 16 and arraigned today in San Francisco Superior Court, the district attorney’s office said.

He is accused of killing the woman during the commission of a sexual assault inside his hotel room and is being held in San Francisco County jail without bail.

If convicted, Hall could face life in prison without the possibility of parole, the district attorney’s office said.

He is scheduled to appear in court on Oct. 24, when a date for his preliminary hearing will be set.
