A man accused of killing a 44-year-old Billings man pleaded not guilty Tuesday morning in District Court to three felony charges.

Jeffery Todd Guy is accused of shooting Scott Maxon six times with a large-caliber handgun, then dragging his body into an alley.

Guy appeared for arraignment by video from the county jail. He pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide and two counts of felony tampering.

Judge Russell Fagg maintained bond at $500,000.

Scott Maxon’s body was found in an alley behind Guy’s home at 738 Broadwater Ave. on March 20. Guy had called the police at 8:15 a.m. to report he had found a body when he was taking out garbage.

Police were suspicious of Guy’s behavior at the scene. Court records say Guy met officers in the alley and was asked to move away from the body several times.

Court documents say officers found evidence that the victim’s body had been dragged. They also found spent .45-caliber bullet casings in Guy’s fireplace, recovered a Mac-10 semiautomatic pistol from a closet and found numerous bullet holes in the floor, a couch and the window.

Prosecutors allege that Guy tried to destroy evidence by burning spent shell casings and removing the victim’s body and cleaning blood evidence.
