BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — A woman arrested outside Ellen DeGeneres' Beverly Hills home last week has pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor trespassing and says she will represent herself.

District Attorney's spokeswoman Jane Robison says Karen Grace Sjoden entered the plea during a hearing Monday afternoon, hours after she was charged.

She is due back in court on March 7, when her trial may begin.

Sjoden's bail has been set at $200,000.

Beverly Hills police have not released any information about Sjoden's arrest.

Jail records show the 49-year-old woman was booked early Feb. 10.

A representative for DeGeneres did not immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment. The 53-year-old talk show host and comedian is married to actress Portia (POR'-shuh) DeGeneres.
