A high school football star accused of beating a man to death pleaded not guilty in court Thursday.

McKinley High School senior Gerime Bradley is charged with manslaughter. On March 23, police say he knocked John Howard, 38, unconscious near his home in Ewa Beach. Howard died a few days later.

In our report on April 1, the two friends who were in the car with Bradley are cooperating with police and gave statements saying what happened. They said Howard was blocking their path in the middle of the road and was yelling and cursing at them. They parked the car a few houses down, came out of the car, and that’s when Bradley confronted the victim.

Bradley remains in custody with bail set at $200,000.

His trial is scheduled for June 9.
