PASADENA (CNS) - A parolee pleaded not guilty to a murder charge for allegedly shooting a woman last month in Pasadena in what police called an apparent act of domestic violence.

Guary Lonnie Shuford III, 32, of Los Angeles, was charged Aug. 23 with one count each of murder and possession of a firearm by a felon.

Shuford -- who is on parole for robbery -- surrendered to SWAT officers without incident several hours after police determined he was barricaded inside an apartment unit within the complex that was connected to Jamila Elysse Moss, according to Pasadena police Lt. Monica Cuellar.

The 34-year-old woman was pronounced dead Aug. 21 in an exterior portion of the apartment complex, according to the lieutenant.

SWAT teams, along with crisis negotiators, from both the Pasadena and Glendale police departments, responded to the shooting scene, Cuellar said, noting that the standoff included moments of negotiating.

Shuford has remained behind bars since he was taken into custody, jail records show.
