Not guilty plea in Bellevue bar shootingJanuary 10, 2013 @ 10:25 am
SEATTLE (AP) - The man accused of fatally shooting a man early Christmas Eve at a Bellevue bar pleaded not guilty Thursday to a murder charge.
The 19-year-old Renton man, Ja'Mari Alexander Jones, would face a sentence of 20 to 28 years in prison if convicted.
Police say he killed DeShawn Milliken and wounded another man at Munchbar in Bellevue Square Mall as hundreds of people, including some Seahawks players, celebrated a football victory. Jones was arrested Jan. 2 in a stolen car in Lakewood.
In 2009 Jones was one of three teens convicted of manslaughter as a juvenile in the beating death of a Seattle street performer known as Tuba Man.
