Suspect pleads not guilty in murder of girlfriend

Andrew O'John pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder in the shooting death of Keleshia Nash in Arapahoe County District Court on Aug. 19.

O'John, 20, admitted firing the shot that killed Nash, 22, in a Littleton apartment complex on Sept. 26, 2018, according to police testimony at a preliminary hearing in March, though he said it was an accident while he was trying to wrestle the gun away from Nash.

Littleton Police detective Erin Brannan testified at the hearing that O'John gave rambling and ever-changing explanations about the events that led up to the shot, but said the couple had been fighting after O'John saw a photo of Nash's ex-boyfriend on her phone.

The case is currently scheduled for an eight-day trial in January 2020.
