BATON ROUGE - A 13-year-old accused of murdering a 6-year-old denied those allegations in court Tuesday.

Jesavrie Bell appeared in a Baton Rouge court Tuesday morning alongside an appointed public defender. The teen is accused of shooting 6-year-old Jahiem Holliday while playing with a group of children in their neighborhood Nov. 2.

Bell told police he was playing with a gun he found inside his uncle's home when he accidentally fired it and killed Holliday.

Though Bell and his defense pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder Tuesday, he remains in custody, having not made his $15,000 bail.

His next court appearance is set for Jan. 9, 2019.
