The police officers charged in the killing of two unarmed residents on a New Orleans bridge after Hurricane Katrina and the cover-up that followed are headed back to court to plead their case for bail.

Sgts. Robert Gisevius and Kenneth Bowen and Officer Anthony Villavaso pled not guilty to 27 federal counts with penalties including life in prison or the death penalty.

Former officer Robert Faulcon made his initial court appearance in Texas, where he was arrested, but has not entered a plea.

Attorneys for the men say they are not a risk of flight or a danger to the community.

Federal prosecutors are expected to fight their release.
