CHAMBERLAIN, S.D. (AP) - A Kimball man accused of shooting a Highway Patrol trooper during a daylong standoff pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of insanity.

Donald London is charged with two counts of attempted murder and three counts of aggravated assault against a law enforcement officer.

The 42-year-old and his father, 66-year-old Michael London, were arraigned Tuesday in Chamberlain.

Prosecutors say Donald London fired his rifle and struck Highway Patrol Sgt. John Koenig when troopers surrounded his house after he threatened to kill the Chamberlain police chief.

Koenig is out of the hospital and was in court Tuesday.

Attorney General Marty Jackley says more than 100 rounds were fired from the house during the lengthy standoff.

Michael London pleaded not guilty to charges of aiding and abetting the crime.
