A 19-year-old New Hampshire man has been charged with causing or aiding in the suicide of his roommate.

Police said 19-year-old Michael Buskey was found dead of a gunshot wound in the woods near his Plymouth apartment earlier this month. His death was determined to be a suicide.

WMUR-TV reports Parker Hogan was arraigned Tuesday. His lawyer entered not guilty pleas on the charge and on three counts of falsifying physical evidence.

Police say in court documents that Hogan helped plan Buskey's suicide. They say the two went into the woods near the apartment, where they practiced ways for Buskey to shoot himself.

Hogan left the woods, waited until he heard a gunshot and returned to find Buskey dead. He called police and Buskey's father the next morning.
