DEXTER, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri man who says he had sexual contact with as many 300 people since being diagnosed with HIV has pleaded not guilty to infecting another man with the virus.

David Mangum entered the plea Thursday. Stoddard County prosecutor Russell Oliver says more potential victims have come forward since Mangum was charged last week with recklessly infecting another with HIV, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison.

Oliver says additional charges are expected. Mangum's attorney didn't return messages.

Court documents allege Mangum told detectives in Dexter, a small town in southeast Missouri, that he had unprotected sex with as many as 300 partners since he was diagnosed a decade ago. As many as 60 of those contacts allegedly occurred after he moved to Missouri from Dallas in 2011.

FRANKFORD, Mo. (AP) - A 45-year-old suburban St. Louis man accused of shooting his adult son to death told a northeast Missouri deputy that "he had no other choice."

Michael Lee Phillips of St. John is charged with second-degree murder and armed criminal action after the shooting death of 22-year-old Jeff Chisholm in rural Pike County last Saturday night.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports that Phillips said he first fired a warning shot that didn't dissuade his son from advancing as they fought.

A probable cause statement says witnesses reported Chisholm arguing with his girlfriend and then his mother as she tried to prevent her son from driving after he had been drinking.

Phillips was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning. Online court records do not list an attorney on his behalf.

STEELVILLE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri murder case will hinge on claims of self-defense and whether a property owner had the right to shoot a canoer who may have intruded on his land.

James Crocker had grown weary of the people encroaching on his property along the Meramec River. A nasty confrontation in July ended when Crocker allegedly shot and killed Paul Dart Jr., who was on a canoe trip.

Defense attorney Michael Bert says Crocker is covered by the state's castle doctrine, which allows the use of deadly force to protect property. Bert says Crocker also felt his life was in danger.

Prosecutors cited witnesses who said Crocker flew into a rage and opened fire after a man relieved himself near his yard. He has been charged with second-degree murder.
