CHARLESTON, WV (WOWK)—A man accused of shooting and killing another man in Charleston entered a not-guilty plea on Wednesday in Kanawha County Circuit Court, according to the Kanawha County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
Court records say that Shavan Collins was indicted for first-degree murder, being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, and use of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Collins is accused of shooting Dontaze Mosley, 34, of Charleston, who was found in the front yard of a house on the 1400 block of Frame St. with a gunshot wound to his chest. Mosley was pronounced dead at the hospital.
