One of the two men arrested in the shooting death of Jonesboro rapper Lil Snupe is home following an arraignment Tuesday.

Edrick Stewart was arraigned in Winnfield on a charge of illegally discharging a weapon. He pleaded not guilty.

District Attorney Chris Nevils said Stewart posted bond and was released to his mother to return home to Monroe. He said Stewart had no prior criminal history and did not pose a flight risk or a danger to the public.

Stewart had been in jail since July 3 after his arrest for his reported connection in the shooting of Addarren Ross, known in the music business as Lil Snupe. Ross, 18, had signed with Meek Mill's Dream Chaser label and was thought to be a rising star in the industry.

Ross died of two apparent gunshot wounds on June 20 at an apartment complex in Winnfield, according to reports from the Winnfield Police Department.

Nevils said Stewart could still face murder charges once all the facts are in. The district attorney's office is waiting for autopsy and forensic reports from New Orleans.

"I couldn't in good faith charge him with any more than what I charged him with," Nevils said. "I don't have enough information right now."

Another man, Tony Holden, was arrested on June 25 in connection with the shooting and remains in jail. Nevils said Holden is facing a double-digit sentence from drug-related charges.

Nevils said he will decide how to charge Hayden in the Ross case after he has all the information.

"He's in the same boat as Stewart in that I don't have enough information right now to charge him," Nevils said.

Stewart wrote to The News-Star in August professing his innocence in Lil Snupe's death. Stewart wrote in the letter that he was trying to protect Lil Snupe during a robbery.
