RENO, NV - A Reno man will stay in jail, charged with shooting and killing his friend.
Matthew Mahaffey pleaded not guilty Tuesday, and Wednesday, a judge denied his request for bail.
Police say last July, Mahaffey shot Michael Boyle while Mahaffey was picking Boyle up in downtown Reno.
Investigators say Boyle was opening the door to Mahaffey's truck when Mahaffey shot Boyle.
Mahaffey says he thought someone was trying to break into his truck.
