BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A western North Dakota man has pleaded not guilty to attempted murder and several drug-related charges in a nonfatal stabbing.

Tyson Gappert of Zap entered his plea Wednesday in South Central District Court. He faces up to 46 years in prison if convicted of attempted murder, aggravated assault and drug charges.

Gappert is accused of stabbing another Zap man in the stomach during a fight last month at the home of the man’s girlfriend. The Bismarck Tribune (https://bit.ly/1ccaRBj ) reports the victim required surgery for a punctured liver and was put in a drug-induced coma.

An email seeking comment was left early Thursday with Grappert’s attorney.

He’s due back in court for a pre-trial conference on May 13.
