MOSCOW, Idaho -

A Moscow man has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge in the shooting death of an acquaintance.

The Lewiston Tribune reports Nathaniel H. Nisbet entered his plea to second-degree murder Monday in Latah County 2nd District Court.

Prosecutors say the 28-year-old Nisbet shot and killed 42-year-old Charles "Pat" McMichael during a confrontation at a Moscow home on Nov. 10.

They say McMichael was supposed to help Nisbet's estranged wife change the locks on her mobile home, but McMichael found Nisbet inside with a 9 mm pistol.

A trial is scheduled for March 18. Nisbet faces between 10 years and life in prison if he is convicted.

He is in custody on $300,000 bond.
