OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Relatives of a homicide suspect say he’s innocent of the allegations because he was at a family picnic when an Omaha woman was shot.

On Wednesday a judge ordered Michael Goynes held without bail while awaiting trial on charges of first-degree murder and other crimes. Police say he fatally shot Barbara Williams during a drive-by outside an apartment building on April 25.

Deshawn Goynes and Allenzandra Valentine say their brother never left the family picnic and say they have photos of him there.

A murder charge against Goynes in a separate, 2015 case was dropped earlier this year because prosecutors had doubts about proving the allegation.
