A probationer accused of gunning down a 27-year-old man at his Moreno Valley home pleaded not guilty Friday to murder and other charges.
Kenneisha Infinity Brazile, 23, allegedly killed Lamar Wilkins in the 24500 block of Atwood Avenue, near Indian Street, on the evening of March 16.
Along with the murder count, Brazile is charged with sentence-enhancing gun and great bodily injury allegations. She was arraigned before Riverside County Superior Court Judge David Gunn, who scheduled a felony settlement conference for Aug. 13 at the Riverside Hall of Justice.
The defendant is being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Robert Presley Jail in Riverside.
According to sheriff’s Sgt. Steve Brosche, Brazile and the victim were involved in an unspecified confrontation, during which she allegedly pulled a handgun and shot him in the upper body.
Deputies converged on the location minutes later and discovered Wilkins dead. Brazile had fled the scene, Brosche alleged.
He said Central Homicide Unit detectives pieced together events and ultimately identified the Moreno Valley woman as the alleged shooter. She was taken into custody without incident at her residence in the 21400 block of Dickinson Road in the predawn hours of March 19.
The exact nature of the relationship between the defendant and victim was not disclosed.
According to court records, Brazile has prior misdemeanor convictions for shoplifting and battery.
