MIAMI (AP) — A man accused of driving a boat that capsized off Miami, killing four Haitian women, has pleaded not guilty to multiple federal charges.

Naaman Davis pleaded not guilty in Miami federal court Monday to charges of smuggling resulting in death, involuntary manslaughter and illegal re-entry after being deported. His attorney has said he intends to give Davis "a zealous, aggressive defense of these charges."

The man federal prosecutors say was Davis' crewman for the smuggling operation pleaded not guilty last week to charges of smuggling resulting in death and illegal re-entry.

Both men were among 11 survivors found clinging to the boat's overturned hull in mid-October.

A funeral was held over the weekend for one of the victims. Funerals for two other victims will be held Saturday in South Florida.
