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.
