JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The man accused of shooting and killing his supervisor at a landscaping company last month pleaded not guilty Tuesday to a charge of second-degree murder.
Ezequiel Lopez, 24, was arrested within minutes of the shooting of 55-year-old Andrew Little on March 9 at B&L Landscaping.
Lopez told detectives that Little had disrespected him and paid him less than other employees.
Lopez is being held without bond. He is due back in court for a pretrial hearing on April 21.
Lopez is an illegal immigrant and is also under an Immigration and Customs Enforcement hold at the jail.
