A New Jersey dad was arraigned on Monday on child endangerment charges after his young son got a hold of his unsecured gun and shot his friend, killing him.
 
Anthony Senatore of Toms River pleaded not guilty in state Superior Court to six counts of child endangerment and rejected a plea deal that would have required him to serve seven years in prison.

The accidental shooting took place on April 8 in Anthony Senatore's backyard in Toms River.

Police say the 34-year-old father left a loaded riffle unsecured inside the home. Senatore's four-year-old son got a hold of the gun and fatally shot his 6-year-old neighbor, Brandon Holt, in the head.

Four other guns were found unsecured in the home.
