A city judge has set bail at $100,000 each for the man and woman charged with manslaughter in the beating death of a 39-year-old woman.
Freddie Cortez, 22, and Micheles Romero, 23, pleaded not guilty before Buffalo City Court Judge James A.W. McLeod.
Each faces a second-degree manslaughter charge in connection with what police described as a fatal beating Aug. 1 in the 800 block of Niagara Street.
Jessica Garcia, of Hertel Avenue, was injured during a fight, was taken to Erie County Medical Center later that evening and died the next day, police have said.
Cortez and Romero are due back in court on Friday.
