EAGLE POINT, Ore. (AP) -- A 26-year-old southern Oregon man accused of fatally shooting his roommate has pleaded not guilty.

KDRV-TV reports that Dylan Ashmun of Eagle Point entered that plea Tuesday to several charges, including manslaughter. He's accused of fatally shooting 24-year-old Joseph Faaeteetee (fay-ah-TEE-tay) last month.

Ashmun's lawyer said he needed time to go over the evidence and will be back in court for a June 4 pre-trial hearing. Bail remains at $1 million.

The death was initially reported as a suicide but detectives got conflicting stories from witnesses at the house north of Medford.
