A judge entered not guilty pleas today for a man charged with murder in the strangulation of his wife and her little girl in their Post Falls apartment July 8. Angel Albertico Morales-Larranaga, 24, chose to remain silent when 1st District Judge Fred Gibler asked for his plea. Gibler then entered a “not guilty” plea to both counts of first-degree murder in the deaths of Facunda Velenzuelaleon, 24, and Dayana M. Valencia, 6. Morales-Larranaga, who is from Mexico, is being held in the Kootenai County Jail on $2 million bail. An interpreter translated Thursday’s court proceeding for him/SR. More here.
