Accused coach pleads not guilty to crash charges

A new court appearance still hasn't resolved anything for the former Central High School basketball coach accused of driving drunk and killing a child on a bike.

Loren LeBeau pleaded not guilty Wednesday to the same charges he was facing before a preliminary hearing last month.

The former coach has indicated he's willing to plead guilty, but his attorney says the charges against him are too severe.

LeBeau faces charges of hit-and-run and manslaughter in connection with the death of 7-year-old Donovan Maldonado.
