A man who has been moving around the country, denies he tried to kill another person while in Casper.

Thirty-five year old Robert Broyles, has pleaded not guilty to one count of attempted second degree murder, two counts of aggravated assault, and one count of possession of a deadly weapon with unlawful intent.

Investigators say early on the morning of the Fourth of July, Broyles was drinking at Morad Park with forty-one year old Jason MacKrill and Benita White.

Investigators say jealousy sparked a fight, and Broyles stabbed MacKrill in the head.

MacKrill was able to escape and call police, and ended up going to the hospital for his injuries.

When police arrived on scene, they saw Broyles coming out of the bushes with a knife and a hatchet, saying he was going to kill someone.

Prosecutors say that Broyles and White have had a history of domestic violence.

Broyles is being held on one-hundred thousand dollars bond, awaiting trial and could receive twenty years to life in prison if convicted.
