PICO RIVERA — A man accused of intentionally running down and killing another man with his car last month pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a murder charge, authorities said.
Alfredo Campos Jr., 38, of Rancho Cucamonga is charged with murder in the Oct. 30 killing of Richard Quintana Becerra, 38, of Pico Rivera.
Campos pleaded not guilty to a murder charged and was ordered to return to Whittier Superior Court Jan. 15 for a hearing, court official said.
Becerra died at the scene of the 1:20 a.m. incident at Passons Boulevard and Telegraph Road, officials said.
According to sheriff’s investigators, the men became involved in a fight before Campos got into his car and intentionally struck Becerra.
Campos fled from the scene, officials said, but was stopped and arrested by deputies a short distance away in an unincorporated county area near Whittier.
According to county booking records, Campos was being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Men’s Central Jail in Los Angeles.
