A Chicago real estate developer accused in a murder for hire plot entered a not guilty plea in a Denver courtroom Friday.

Brooks Kellogg, 73, is in a Colorado jail. Kellogg is accused of planning to kill a business associate who successfully sued him. Kellogg was arrested last month at the Denver International Airport.

Prosecutors say he paid $2,000 to hire a hit man who was really an undercover agent.
