A suspect in the brutal beating of a real estate broker pleads not guilty in Yakima County Court this afternoon.

Daniel Blizzard is facing charges of attempted murder after deputies say he helped orchestrate a plot to have Vern Holbrook killed.

Holbrook was found brutally beaten with a cut to his throat at a home west of Yakima back in May -- he was taken to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, where documents say he suffered extensive brain damage.

Three other suspects, Luis Gomez-Mongez, Adriana Mendez and Jill Taylor remain in jail, pending a trial date.
