DAILYKENN.com -- The 26-year-old black male says he didn't kill Todd Feldkamp and, of course, we believe him.

The Decatur man accused in the shooting death of an Effingham man pleaded not guilty Wednesday.
Keirsean M. Bond, 26, is charged four counts of first-degree murder in the death of Todd Feldkamp, 48, one count of attempted murder of Scottie Bone, 25, and armed robbery with discharge of a firearm, both Class X felonies.
The arrest warrant alleges Bond and an unidentified man killed Feldkamp and injured Bone while stealing marijuana from Bone on Nov. 18 in Decatur.
Bond is charged with four counts of murder due to the different legal theories involved, said First Assistant State’s Attorney Nichole Kroncke.
If convicted, they would be reduced to a single count, she said.
Although Bond is not being charged with firing the gun that killed Feldkamp and wounded Bone, he is being charged with first-degree murder and other related charges under the accountability theory, Kroncke said.
If convicted on all counts, Bond faces a minimum of 66 years in prison, Kroncke said.
The man who actually fired the shots has not been arrested, Kroncke said.
Bond’s attorney, Monroe D. McWard, did not return a phone call Wednesday.
Bond is being held on a $5 million bond and is due in court at 9 a.m. Dec. 18.
