Ex-LAPD officer accused in killing pleads not guilty
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former Los Angeles police officer charged with killing a man outside a bar while off-duty has pleaded not guilty to murder and other counts.
Henry Solis entered his pleas Friday and remains jailed in lieu of $10 million bail.
In addition to the murder count, the 27-year-old faces charges including assault with a firearm and an allegation that he personally discharged a handgun.
Solis was returned to California in June after a two-month manhunt. He had been arrested in Mexico and deported to Texas.
He was wanted in the shooting death of 23-year-old Salome Rodriguez following a dispute at a Pomona nightclub in March.
Solis was a probationary officer at the time.
He could face life in prison if convicted.
