Defendant pleads not guilty in fatal Rapid City stabbing

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Box Elder man has pleaded not guilty to charges in a fatal stabbing in Rapid City last summer.

Thirty-year-old Barry Allman is charged in Pennington County with second-degree murder in the stabbing death of Lance Baumgarten. Allman entered the plea Friday during his first court appearance.

A police affidavit says Allman stabbed Baumgarten in the chest at a Rapid City apartment on Aug. 6. Allman was arrested for the homicide near Wanblee the next day by Oglala Sioux tribal officers.
