CENTENNIAL, Colo. (AP) - A Former Denver Broncos player accused of killing a motor scooter driver in a hit-and-run collision has entered a plea of not guilty.
Billy Jenkins entered his plea Thursday, and his next court appearance is Feb. 5.
Jenkins was charged with vehicular homicide, leaving the scene, driving under the influence and failure to provide insurance.
Authorities say 51-year-old Tracy Gill died when his scooter was rear-ended Aug. 28 in the Denver suburb of Aurora. Jenkins was on the St. Louis Rams' Super Bowl championship team in 1999 and played for the Broncos in 2000-01. He retired in 2002.
If convicted on all counts, Jenkins could be sentenced to eight to 12 years in prison. He is free on bail.
