Kenyatta Brown, 22, faced a judge for the first time Tuesday afternoon. The arraignment lasted just two minutes.
Brown is facing an involuntary manslaughter charge. He's accused of firing the shot that killed 18-year-old Joslynn Sovenski early Saturday morning at an apartment in Carmichael.
Police say it was an accident and that Brown and Sovenski didn't know each other. Investigators tell FOX40 Brown brought the gun to the party but did not intend to hurt the young woman.
Monday, close friends shared memories and pictures of Sovenski. They say she was just getting her life together, planning to start college and hoping to join the Air Force.
"She was amazing. She was probably the best person I've ever met, and she's changed my life," said Sovenski's best friend, Magen Chadburn.
Sovenski's friends were not in court Tuesday, but several of Brown's family and friends were. They refused a request to speak on camera about what happened.
Brown will be back in court Thursday for a bail hearing.
