Bond was denied today for Ronnie Lee Berrian, 28, who is charged with murder in connection with the death of his girlfriend’s godfather.

Investigators discovered Russell Boyd’s body Oct. 10 at Berrian’s home on the 1100 block of Camille Street. Assistant District Attorney Robert Homler said Friday that Berrian shot Boyd once in the chest that day during an argument.

Boyd produced a small pocket knife during the argument, but shooting him was “not comparable to the risk of harm,” Homler said.
