A Meiners Oaks man has pleaded not guilty to murder and a host of other felonies stemming from the shooting death of an acquaintance in early December.
Daniel Joseph Bonilla, 27, remained jailed Thursday night on charges that include murder, carjacking, robbery, kidnapping and violating parole. No bail is allowed on the parole violation, a deputy at the jail said.
During an arraignment Wednesday, Bonilla denied involvement in the Dec. 5 shooting of 36-year-old Thomas Mahl of Ojai, according to court records.
Mahl was shot once in the head during a fight with Bonilla at a Casitas Springs trailer park. He died four days later at Ventura County Medical Center after being taken off life-support machines.
