DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — An 18-year-old accused of fatally shooting a Dayton teen appeared in court on Tuesday.
Jason Tidwell was arraigned in the shooting death of 14-year-old Mackenna Kronenberger.
A grand jury indicted Tidwell on murder, tampering with the evidence and other charges last week.
On Tuesday, a judge entered a not guilty for Tidwell. Tidwell’s bond is set at $1 million.
Tidwell and 18-year-old Dylan Angel were arrested for the July 4th shooting of Kronenberger. A grand jury declined to indict Angel.
Investigators said two groups were fighting outside a home on Morse Avenue when shots were fired. At least one of those bullets went into the house where Kronenberger was in her bedroom.
Kronenberger, a sophomore at Carroll High School, was hit by the bullet. She was taken to the hospital where she died from her injuries.
A judge did not set the next court date for Tidwell.
