A man has pleaded not guilty to charges including attempted murder stemming from a stabbing on Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation.
Shane Hiawatha Denny, 37, pleaded not guilty last week in federal court in Great Falls to assault with the intent to commit murder, assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious injury.
Denny, who is in jail awaiting trial, is accused of stabbing someone in the back with a knife Sept. 17.
According to a court document, federal magistrate Judge Keith Strong scheduled a pretrial conference with Chief District Judge Dana Christensen for Nov. 6.
If convicted, Denny faces up to 25 years in prison and three years supervised release for the attempted murder charge and 10 years in prison and three years of supervised release for each of the other charges.
