The woman accused of killing the pregnant girlfriend of former Chicago Bear Shaun Gayle has pleaded not guilty. Marni Yang entered her plea Wednesday in a Lake County courtroom. A grand jury indicted her last month on murder charges for the death of Rhoni Reuter and her unborn child.

Yang could face life in prison. Prosecutors say she was jealous of the relationship Reuter had with Gayle.

Yang is due back in court next month.
