BERLIN —

A former member of the Red Army Faction has denied involvement in the 1977 murder of West Germany's chief federal prosecutor, one of the leftist group's most notorious killings.

The 59-year-old Verena Becker has been on trial since September 2010, accused of playing a leading role in the fatal ambush of prosecutor Siegfried Buback, his driver and a bodyguard. She is charged with three counts of murder.

News agency dapd reported that Becker, who hadn't previously testified, told the Stuttgart state court Monday that she was "never involved in concrete preparation" for the attack.

She told Michael Buback, the slain prosecutor's son, and a co-plaintiff in the trial, that she wasn't present at the killing.
