An Auburn man who was arrested in the spring for a stabbing that happened at a bar in the city has pleaded not guilty in Cayuga County Court.
According to The Citizen, Gregory Jordan, pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and second-degree assault.
He was indicted in June on the charges.
The stabbing occurred at Swift’s Tavern on Perrine Street on May 29.
A security guard was stabbed in the neck during an incident there.
When first taken into custody, Jordan was charged with assault and criminal possession of a weapon. However, prosecutors pushed for additional charges when taking the case to a grand jury.
Jordan is scheduled to appear in court at a later date.
