An Oakland man pleaded not guilty today to a murder charge for the shooting death of 19-year-old Kenneth Ray Jones in West Oakland last August. Larry Williams, 47, is scheduled to return to Alameda County Superior Court on April 2 for a pretrial hearing. Williams is accused of murdering Jones, who was shot to death near the corner of Eighth and Adeline streets at about 8:55 p.m. on Aug. 27.
Oakland police said Jones was standing on the street corner when he was shot. A second suspect in the case, Arthur White, appeared with Williams in court today but declined to enter a plea and is scheduled to return to court on March 18. White, 35, who also is being held without bail, is charged with being an accessory in the case as well as carrying a concealed weapon and being an ex-felon with a gun.
