APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A restaurant owner from Kimberly has pled not guilty to a human trafficking charge.

Prosecutors say 51-year-old Yen Meier helped smuggle a woman from China into the U.S. They say the victim worked at Meier's restaurant, Yen's Chinese Buffet, for almost no money.

The victim, who had a baby by Meier's brother last April, told police she lived in apartments Meier provided. She also said Meier would usually provide her with just one meal per day.

Meier will stand trial December 9.
