ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - An Aberdeen man accused of killing another man last year has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity to charges of murder and manslaughter.

The American News reports (https://bit.ly/2fn1hSK ) that a judge last week also ordered 55-year-old Bradley Quist to be held without bond.

Quist is accused in the May 2015 death of 61-year-old Ronald Witchey, who authorities say died from blunt-force trauma to the face and head. Quist is to stand trial in mid-December.

Quist made headlines last summer when the City Council denied him a taxicab license in the interest of public safety. Quist unsuccessfully argued to the council that he had “good moral character.”
