Espitia, 31, was sitting in the back of the vehicle while 29-year-old Jennifer was in the front passenger seat.
The couple had been arguing about going to a wedding after-party, Uber driver said he heard a bang before Jennifer slumped over next to him., but Cameron who was engaged in a drunken argument with Jennifer at the time claims he doesn’t remember shooting his wife dead.

Jennifer Morrison Espitias’ friends and relatives were in court, watching as her husband, Cameron, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder charges for fatally shooting her.

The driver described hearing a bang and seeing the woman slumped over. The couple had been arguing about whether to attend a wedding after-party, deputy King County prosecutor Jessica Berliner wrote in court papers.
Cameron Espitia, who is being held on $3million bail, told investigators he had been drinking and ‘having a bad night’ but didn’t remember what happened during the July 2 ride, according to charging documents.

‘The defendant decided he was going to “cut loose” at a wedding,’ Berliner wrote. ‘Despite the fact that he was armed with a loaded firearm, he consumed numerous alcoholic drinks and argued with his wife when she wanted him to go home instead of proceeding to the after-party.’
Cameron was flanked by two attorneys, Joseph Alvarado and Kevin McCabe, during his arraignment before Judge Sean O’Donnell in King County Superior Court. McCabe entered the plea on his behalf.
Cameron, a Coast Guard employee with no criminal history, spoke only to confirm his identity. He faces up to 23 years if convicted.

Relatives and friends of the couple packed the courtroom, but left without speaking to reporters. Jennifer’s sister cried out as the prosecutor recited the charge.
The Uber driver kept driving after the shooting because he feared for his life, police said. Eventually, he pulled over and Cameron got out. The driver then drove another block, before stopping and called 911.
Officers found Cameron nearby. He had apparently fallen in some bushes, his suit was dirty and he had dried blood on his shoulder, police said. He also had a handgun in an ankle holster, authorities said.
He told detectives he couldn’t remember what happened during the ride, but he repeatedly asked how his wife was doing, charging documents said.
