Idaho man denies murder charges in shooting

GRANGEVILLE, Idaho (AP) - A 48-year-old northern Idaho man has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the shooting death of another man at a roadside turnout in Idaho County.

The Lewiston Tribune reports Jason Godwin of Kooskia entered his plea Monday in District Court in Grangeville. He is charged with the June 9 shooting death of 41-year-old Kyle A. Anderson.

Prosecutors allege Godwin shot Anderson in the neck at the roadside pullout where Anderson and his girlfriend were living in a motor home. Charging documents say Anderson was putting license plates on the motor home when he was shot.

Godwin's bail was set at $500,000. District Judge Michael J. Griffin denied a motion by Godwin's public defender to reduce his bail.
