A 68-year-old US man has pleaded not guilty to killing his wife after police found her severed head and her body parts cooking at their home in Southern California.

Police say they responded to neighbours' complaints about a foul odour coming from the couple's home on Friday.

An officer who entered the home through a window said he saw on the stove three pans containing parts of 73-year-old Anna Faris.

Her head was in the freezer.

Deputy District Attorney Katherine Flaherty says there is no evidence of cannibalism at this time.

U-T San Diego reports that Frederick Hengl entered his plea Wednesday. He faces 25 years to life in prison if convicted of all charges.

He remains jailed on $5 million bail.
