SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) -- An October trial has been scheduled for one of three people accused of trying to pass counterfeit cash at Sioux City's Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Court records say 29-year-old Brittany Derby entered a written plea of not guilty to a forgery charge last week in Woodbury County District Court. Her trial is set to begin Oct. 31.

Police say Derby, Kurt Jones and Jackelen Hartsock made several cash transactions at the casino on Aug. 5. Police say the bills were later found to be counterfeit.

Jones and Hartsock also have pleaded not guilty.
