MINOT, N.D. (AP) — A Minot man accused of fatally stabbing a woman in the city last year has pleaded not guilty.

Twenty-seven-year-old Bradley Morales faces a murder charge that could land him in prison for life.

He's accused of stabbing 25-year-old Sharmaine Leake in the neck during an apparent domestic dispute on Aug. 16. She died six days later when her family took her off life support.
