RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Two Rapid City men accused of beating and stabbing another man to death last year have pleaded not guilty.

Nineteen-year-olds Ranon Bissonette and Hunter Highpipe are charged with murder, robbery and conspiracy in the September 2015 death of 56-year-old Edward Lowry, who was found in a pool of blood in a parking lot.

Bissonette and Highpipe were indicted last month, while jailed on unrelated charges. They entered their pleas Tuesday.

Authorities have not discussed a possible motive in the case, which involved a third suspect who authorities say killed himself last month.
