Accused Zillah cockfighter pleads not guilty

YAKIMA, Wash. -- A not guilty plea Monday from the man accused of promoting an illegal cockfight in Zillah.

Andres Ramirez appeared before a judge in plain clothes. He bailed out of jail after police arrested him earlier this month.

Deputies say the ranch foreman organized the cockfight at an orchard.

Investigators say about 200 people were there.
