Not guilty plea in Va. woman's death
One of the suspects charged in the fatal shooting of a Seton Hall University student from Virginia has pleaded not guilty.
Wearing an orange jumpsuit, Nicholas Welch answered "yes" to whether he understood the charges Wednesday. Bail was set at $2 million.
Police arrested Welch Monday night at his house on the same East Orange street where the deadly shooting happened.
Police say Welch returned with a gun and opened fire after he was refused entry to an off-campus party. Nineteen-year-old honors student Jessica Moore was killed and four people were wounded.
Moore was from Disputanta, Va., in Prince George Co.
Authorities are searching for a second man who they say provided the gun to Welch.
Seton Hall is a private Catholic university in nearby South Orange, about 15 miles west of New York City.
