Man Pleads "Not Guilty" in Death of Child



A man accused of killing a child in Selah pleads not guilty this afternoon to second degree murder in Yakima County Court.

David Holbrook told police he threw his girlfriend's child, Sadie Rivera, up in the air, where she hit her head on the ceiling.

However, the coroner says that story does not line up with the official cause of death -- reports show the child died from "crushing trauma to the chest."

Holbrook will be back in court next month.
