PASAGOULA, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi man faces new charges in a road rage death earlier this year.
Luis Ruiz Soto Jr., 28, of Gautier was arraigned Tuesday on charges of second-degree murder, shooting a motor vehicle and two counts of aggravated assault.

Authorities described the shooting as a road rage incident.
Pascagoula police initially arrested Soto on murder and assault charges.
He pleaded not guilty to the new charges Tuesday.
