LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - A northern Idaho man charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man has pleaded not guilty.

The Lewiston Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1ePDcey) that the attorney for 27-year-old Christopher J. Partee entered the plea Tuesday in 2nd District Court.

Partee is charged with shooting 41-year-old Coby J. Bloodsworth on Feb 11 at a mobile home in Peck during an argument at Partee’s residence.

Nez Perce County prosecutors say Bloodsworth and Partee were involved in an argument at a gas station that continued at Partee’s mobile home.

Partee said Bloodsworth threatened him so he pointed a gun at Bloodsworth’s feet. He said he shot Bloodsworth in the chest when Bloodsworth moved aggressively toward him.

A jury trial is set for July 7. Partee remains in custody on $250,000 bond.
