Alleged La. Klan leader pleads not guilty in death

COVINGTON, La. (AP) - The suspected leader of a Ku Klux Klan group in Louisiana has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death of an Oklahoma woman who police say was killed during an initiation.

Raymond Foster entered his plea Tuesday and a judge refused his request for bond. A grand jury indicted Foster and three other suspected Klan members in the death of 43-year-old Cynthia Lynch, of Tulsa, Okla.

Authorities say Lynch was recruited to join the group over the Internet and was shot to death when a disagreement arose during an initiation in November.

Foster's son and another suspect have been indicted on an obstruction of justice charge. A fourth suspect was charged as an accessory after the fact.
