     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A man accused in a fatal shooting in a Rapid City parking lot has pleaded not guilty to several charges.
     Thirty-year-old Charles Birdshead is accused of shooting 33-year-old Eustacio Murrufo to death on Jan. 7 at the South Dakota Rose Inn. 
     Birdshead pleaded not guilty Tuesday to eight charges, including first-degree manslaughter, fourth-degree rape, commission of a felony with a firearm, possession of a controlled weapon and distributing methamphetamine to a minor.
     The rape charge involves a child, which police say was uncovered during their investigation.
