BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A man who pleaded guilty to murder in Bismarck now wants to withdraw that plea.

Mark Butts is accused of stabbing 57-year-old Richard Glover to death in a car in December 2014. In January he pleaded guilty to a lower-level felony murder charge that carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison rather than life.

Butts has now asked to withdraw the plea and change attorneys. The judge in the case did not immediately rule.

Butts has said in court that he’s homeless. Court documents list his address as Rapid City, South Dakota.
