A former Red Cliff tribal official pleaded not guilty Monday in Bayfield County Circuit Court to charges that he murdered a Washburn woman in 2003.

Michael LaGrew, 55, was charged with first-degree intentional homicide on March 19 in the death of Jody Richard, 50, in June 2003. She was director of the family education center in Red Cliff and taught literacy programs when she disappeared after not returning to work.
