The suspect in a deadly stabbing in Shandon last month pleaded not guilty in court Wednesday.
Kejuan Guy Bynum, 26, of Atascadero is charged with murder for the death of Cristopher Vento Wilson, 23, of Paso Robles.
The stabbing occurred early in the evening on June 1 in the 200 block of Escondido Way. Wilson reportedly died at the hospital.
The felony complaint against Bynum alleges that he used a knife in the stabbing. It also says he was previously convicted of robbery and served two prior state prison terms for threatening a witness and resisting arrest by force or violence.
According to the San Luis Obispo County District Attorney’s Office, Bynum faces life in prison if convicted of the murder charge.
He is being held without bail in San Luis Obispo County Jail and is due back in court at the end of the month.
