 GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP) -- A Billings man charged in the stabbing death of a
21-year-old man in a Fort Benton bar has pleaded not guilty to deliberate homicide.
   A court affidavit says Casey Lee Carolos stabbed Fletcher Courtnage-McKinsey
four times at the Pastime Bar on Jan. 19.
   The Great Falls Tribune reports the 25-year-old Carlos entered his not guilty plea
 Tuesday during his arraignment in Chouteau County District Court.
   He also faces charges of assault with a weapon and tampering with evidence.
   The affidavit says at least two witnesses told police the stabbing happened
while Courtnage-McKinsey was in a fist fight with another individual.
   Fort Benton police later found a knife in the street not far from the bar.
   Carlos is being held at the Chouteau County Jail on a $500,000 bond.
