JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. -- Alex Granillo-Alvarado, who is suspected of speeding more than 100 mph, losing control of his vehicle and killing three passengers in a crash in August near South Turkey Creek, pleaded not guilty in a Jefferson County court Tuesday.

Alvarado is out on $50,000 bond, but the judge continued his order that Alvarado must wear an ankle monitor.

The families of the victims -- Samantha Manzanarez-Benavidez, 23, Chelsey Gallegos, 25, and Sean Muniz, 22, all from the Denver metro area -- said Tuesday's hearing is one step closer to justice, but the ripple effects of a crime like this will never end.
