The man accused of shooting and killing a 55 year old woman last week was in court Wednesday morning.
 
Michael Goynes faces murder and weapons charges for the April 25th death of Barbara Williams near 48th and Boyd. Despite the charges, Goynes' family says police again have the wrong man. Dashawn Goynes says his brother was nowhere near the the crime scene, and says he doesn't know Williams. Police say Goynes drove a white Kia Optima, got out of the car, and started shooting. Williams was struck and died at the scene. Police say she was an innocent bystander and another man was grazed by shrapnel. Dashawn says his brother has an alibi. "He wasn't there at the time. He was at a picnic with me and ten other guys and then after the picnic we went to a grave site and we posted pictures around the time that he being accused of the lady that got killed at 4:55. We posted pictures directly at that time" Goynes says. He also claims his brother couldn't have pulled the trigger because he's recovering from a gunshot wound from a different incident.
 
Michael Goynes was released from jail for another murder case in March after prosecutors dropped the charges. He's now being held without bond in this case and has another court appearance in June.
