ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - One of two Minnesota men accused of robbing a South Dakota casino at gunpoint has pleaded not guilty.

Roger Kihega, of Cokato, Minnesota, pleaded not guilty to armed robbery and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon Friday.

The American News reports (https://bit.ly/1KM8l05 ) Kihega is accused of stealing cash from Casino Korner in Aberdeen. Michael Washington is also facing charges.

Authorities say each of the men fired a shot in the air while robbing the business. Nobody was hurt.

Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Chris White filed paperwork Friday charging Kihega as a habitual offender, meaning he has several prior felonies and could face a more severe maximum penalty.

Bond for Kihega is set at $100,000 cash.
