A suspect in the 1984 disappearance and death of a Crowley businessman has pleaded not guilty. Leila Mulla entered the plea Friday morning in a Baton Rouge court. She is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Gary Kergan. Police believe Mulla and another suspect, Ronald Dunnigan, beat Kergan to death. Mulla will return to court on September 19 for a hearing.
