Ex-Detroit mayor appears in court on new charges

Kwame Kilpatrick, the imprisoned former mayor of Detroit, pleaded not guilty to new charges of racketeering, extortion, bribery and filing false tax returns Monday, court officials said.

Kilpatrick along with four other defendants were at the arraignment in federal court in Michigan.

The five defendants were silent as their charges were read to them and not guilty pleas were entered for them.

A pre-trial hearing was set for April 13.
