LAWRENCE, Kansas — A 29-year-old Topeka man pleaded not guilty to a homicide at a Lawrence apartment complex in March.

Archie Lamont Robinson entered the plea Thursday to first-degree murder and aggravated battery in the death of 39-year-old Patrick Roberts of Lawrence.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports ( ) Robinson's co-defendant, Dustin Walker, pleaded not guilty in June to the same charges.

Prosecutors say Robinson and Walker kicked in the door to Roberts' duplex and shot him in the abdomen. At a preliminary hearing in October, two witnesses could not identify Robinson.

Robinson and Walker remain in the Douglas County Jail on $1 million bond each. Their trials are scheduled for February.
