A Casper man has denied allegations that he threatened two individuals with a knife during an incident in April.

20-year-old Lonnie Parham entered not guilty pleas to two counts of aggravated assault on Thursday in Natrona County District Court.

Prosecutors claim Parham threatened his former girlfriend and another victim with knife violence during an altercation outside of a residence in the 1000 block of Saint Mary St. on April 1. Court documents indicate Parham screamed several threats at the victims while they were in a vehicle outside the residence.

District judge Catherine Wilking rejected a proposed plea deal on Thursday between Parham’s attorney and prosecutors that would have sent Parham to prison for no longer than five years.

In that plea deal, Parham would have served prison time on one count of aggravated assault. Parham would have served that prison term concurrently with an unrelated prior for forgery.

Parham would have also received credit for time already served.

Parham faces up to 10 years in prison on each aggravated assault charge. He’s being held at the Natrona County Detention Center on $10,000 bond.
