IDAHO FALLS — A 20-year-old man facing a first-degree murder charge pleaded not guilty in court Tuesday morning.

Jameion Hernandez is now scheduled to face a jury on April 10, 2018, for the alleged murder of Ammon resident Lisa Stukey.

Hernandez was booked into the Bonneville County Jail without bond on July 19, 2017 after he allegedly killed Stukey in her home.

During a preliminary hearing in November, forensic pathologist Dr. Charles Garison said Stukey died as a result of blunt force trauma to the head.

If found guilty, Hernandez could face up to life in prison or the death penalty.
