Appearing in court on Monday, Arizona rancher George Alan Kelly pled not guilty to downgraded charges in connection to the shooting of a Mexican man on his property in January.

73-year-old Kelly was arraigned on Monday on a second-degree murder charge for the January 30 shooting of Gabriel Cuen-Butimea, downgraded from the first-degree murder charge that prosecutors were seeking after public criticism, according to the Daily Mail.
