Lyle Ludvick speaks to his attorney Tuesday during his arraignment in Kenai Superior Court. It was Ludvick's first appearance in open court.

Lyle D. Ludvick, 44, faces charges of second-degree murder, burglary, assault and tampering with evidence after a witness to the alleged July shooting picked Ludvick out of a photo lineup.

Superior Court Judge Charles Huguelet set a tentative trial date for Nov. 1.

Ludvick's attorney, Andrew Haas, entered no pleas on his client's behalf.

"I don't have anything to talk about," Haas said following the hearing.

Thomas Mason, who witnessed the alleged July 16 shooting, said Ludvick shot and killed McGee inside a Soldotna residence after an argument over a $500 gun deal.

Ludvick is being held at the Wildwood Pretrial facility on a $100,000 cash performance bond and a $25,000 cash appearance bond with a court appointed third-party custodian.
