Man charged with Moneytree murders pleads not guilty

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - The man charged with the murders of two Moneytree employees pleaded not guilty in court today. Manuel Enrique Verduzco, a former Moneytree employee, was charged last month with two counts of first-degree murder and first-degree robbery in the shooting deaths of Marta Martinez and Karina Morales-Rodriguez.

Today Verduzco pleaded not guilty to all three charges. The judge asked all media not to show the defendants face, but didn't explain why. A separate hearing to discuss a possible death sentence is scheduled for May 6th. Verduzco's trial is tentatively set for early June.
