ST. LOUIS (AP) — A rural Missouri man charged with infecting another man with HIV is now facing charges that accuse him of risking infection to three other partners.

Stoddard County prosecutor Russell Oliver said Friday that 36-year-old David Mangum of Dexter, Missouri is now facing 21 additional counts for having unprotected sex with three men without telling them he was HIV-positive.

Mangum is jailed without bond. His attorney did not respond to interview requests.

Mangum was arrested last month after a man with whom he'd been intimate tested positive and alerted police. The new counts are a lesser charge because the new accusers are not HIV-positive.

Mangum claims he had sexual contact with as many as 300 people since being diagnosed a decade ago. He moved to Missouri two years ago from Dallas, Texas.

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.
