A Nassau County judge Sunday ordered a Rockville Centre man arrested Saturday in the shooting death of a Hempstead man last month to be held without bail.

Keon O. Williams, 37, of 20 Meehan Lane, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder. Judge Martin Massell ordered that Williams be remanded to jail during his arraignment in Nassau District Court in Hempstead. He is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday.
