A Pomona man who served time in prison for a 2010 killing pleaded not guilty Tuesday to new criminal charges stemming from his arrest Saturday.

Samuel Boyd, 27, is charged with one felony count each of possession of a firearm by a felon, carrying a stolen loaded firearm on one’s person or in a vehicle and unlawful possession of ammunition and one misdemeanor count of child abuse under circumstances or conditions other than great bodily injury or death, according to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.

Boyd, who was described by Pomona police as a documented gang member, has remained jailed since his arrest shortly after a traffic stop 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the 300 block of Fuego Avenue.

A 7-year-old child was also inside the vehicle with Boyd and was subsequently released to a legal guardian, according to Pomona police.

Boyd — who was one of six young men charged in the January 2010 shooting deaths of two teenage boys at Ted Greene Park in Pomona — pleaded no contest in 2011 to one count of voluntary manslaughter and was sentenced to three years in state prison.
