A 20-year-old Severna Park man was to go on trial today in Baltimore Circuit Court in connection with the death of a 6-year-old girl who was hit by a stray bullet during a gun battle on a West Baltimore street last summer.
Guy Bernard Wilson, of the 300 block of Jennings Road, has pleaded not guilty in the July 9 shooting, the prosecutor said.
He faces several charges, including first-degree murder and a handgun violation, the prosecutor said.
Mr. Wilson is being held without bail at the Baltimore Detention Center.
A second man, Arthur Felton, 19, was arrested by New York City police at his sister's home in Brooklyn Jan. 19. New York police executed a Baltimore arrest warrant charging him with first-degree murder and a handgun violation in connection with the girl's death. Mr. Felton was arrested after police received a tip on his whereabouts, a New York police spokesman said.
