 A woman accused with two men in the fatal beating of a Milwaukee man that was captured on Snapchat has pleaded not guilty.
 
Reports say 20-year-old Sarah Zakzesky waived her right to a preliminary hearing Thursday and was bound over for trial.
 
Zakzesky and brothers 20-year-old Devin Katzfey and 19-year-old Branden Katzfey are charged as parties to first-degree reckless homicide in the death last week of 20-year-old Delvin Mendoza-Chaparro.
 
According to the criminal complaints, the victim had joined the defendants in smoking marijuana at Zakzesky's apartment and they all fell asleep. When Devin Katzfey awoke, he thought Mendoza-Chaparro was trying to steal drug paraphernalia and began beating him.
 
The beating was recorded on the victim's own Snapchat account. His body was found in an alley.
