SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) - A Springfield man accused of killing an innocent bystander during a street argument has denied a murder charge.

The Republican reports (https://bit.ly/14aYnFA ) that 20-year-old Justin Webber denied the murder charge Friday during an arraignment in Hampden Superior Court in Springfield. A judge ordered him held without right to bail.

Webber also is charged with gun crimes in connection with the fatal shooting of John White outside his home in the Indian Orchard neighborhood in June 2013.

Police say the 38-year-old White went outside to investigate an argument involving 15 to 20 people on a street corner when he was fatally wounded when someone opened fire. Police say White was an innocent bystander.

Webber was indicted by a grand jury last month. He’s also awaiting trial on unrelated gun charges.
