Not guilty plea entered for Junction City man

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) -- A former Fort Riley soldier stood silent while a judge entered a not guilty plea for him in the killing of a Kansas National Guard member outside a Manhattan motorcycle club.

Twenty-six-year-old Daniel Parker is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of 21-year-old Frederick Beverly. Beverly was shot early Jan. 1 outside the "Assassin Street Rydaz" club in Manhattan.

At the time, Parker was a specialist with the First Infantry Division. Investigators say Parker had clashed with other members of the motorcycle club, of which Beverly was a member.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (http://bit.ly/TrM3YK ) Judge David Stutzman entered a plea of not guilty Monday after Parker stayed silent during his court hearing.

The trial was scheduled for April 8-12.
