A 33-year-old man has pleaded not guilty to murder and weapons charges in a drug-related slaying in western Nebraska.

Jason Custer made his pleas during an arraignment Thursday in Cheyenne County District Court in Sidney.

Custer is accused of fatally shooting Adam McCormick on Nov. 3 in Sidney. Authorities have said they think the two men were arguing about $160 in drug money.

Custer fled Sidney to Big Springs, where he was arrested later that day at a motel.

Custer remains in custody, pending $1 million bail. His next hearing is scheduled for Jan. 8.
