CHARLES CITY, Iowa — A September trial has been scheduled for a man suspected of shooting another man to death in northern Iowa.

Court records say 36-year-old Antoine Williams pleaded not guilty Monday in Floyd County District Court to a charge of first-degree murder. His trial is set to begin Sept. 12.

Authorities say he shot 36-year-old Nathaniel Fleming, of Mason City, several times in Charles City on June 30 before pulling Fleming out of a vehicle and fleeing the scene.

Williams was arrested in Chicago on July 5.
