RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A Rapid City man has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the robbery death of his brother.

Fifty-four-year-old James Ladeaux Sr. also has pleaded not guilty to aggravated assault against law enforcement officers for allegedly threatening them with a knife.

Authorities say Ladeaux's 53-year-old brother, Fredrick, was fatally stabbed in an alley in March.

Second-degree murder is punishable by a maximum sentence of life in prison. Defense attorney Matthew Skinner tells the Rapid City Journal that his client might argue self-defense.
